Welcome to week two. It’s a big one for Tennessee, as they’re set to face the Pittsburgh Panthers out of the ACC. Both sides enter the matchup at 1-0, after both handled cupcake opponents in week one.
Today’s matchup has been branded the Johnny Majors Classic, with the legendary head coach playing massive roles inside of each program. Tennessee will return the favor with a trip to Pittsburgh next year.
It’s the first big test for Josh Heupel at Tennessee, who is familiar with the Pitt program. UCF played Pitt in 2018 and 2019, splitting those two games. Now at a new program with entirely different personnel, can Heupel improve to 2-1 over Pat Narduzzi?
We’re interested to see this offense in action again after a bumpy start in week one. Can Joe Milton bounce back after struggling in the opener? Can the run game bail out the Volunteers again if Milton can’t spark the passing attack? We’ll know a lot more about this team this afternoon.
