Tennessee and Iowa are set to do battle in Orlando. The Vols and the Hawkeyes will square off in the Citrus Bowl this afternoon at Camping World Stadium. It’s going to be a true clash in styles, with Tennessee’s up-tempo spread going up against Iowa’s slow, pro-style, defense-first approach.
Tennessee will be in their traditional orange and white.
Tennessee will be dealing with a handful of opt-outs and transfers today. Most notably, the Volunteers will be without their top two running backs, Jabari Small and Jaylen Wright. Tennessee will also be playing with a completely new-look secondary following the transfer of Doneiko Slaughter, Wesley Walker, Warren Burrell, Brandon Turnage and Tamarion McDonald. The good news? Iowa’s passing attack shouldn’t present too much of a problem.
Nico Iamaleava will get his first start today for Tennessee after the opt-out of Joe Milton. The former five-star prospect will face a tough first test as Tennessee fans get a glimpse into 2024.
Tennessee is a 5.5 point favorite, per DraftKings Sportsbook.
