Nobody is expecting Tennessee to go beat Alabama, Georgia or Florida this season. However, a handful of swing games is where judgements will begin to be made. Tennessee has already had one of those moments against Pittsburgh, now the second game of that bunch is up today.
The Volunteers have headed west and are set to face the Missouri Tigers today, who also sit at 2-2 on the year. Missouri is coming off of a tough road loss to Boston College, a game that went into overtime.
Both teams are in nearly identical spots here and both sides are feeling the pressure to land that first conference win. For Tennessee, we may look back at this game as being the reason why the Volunteers got to — or didn’t get to — six wins in 2021.
