Tennessee’s 2023 schedule was finalized and announced live on the SEC Network on Tuesday night. There wasn’t a ton to learn with the release, but the Volunteers did see some dates shift around the schedule.
The Volunteers will face Texas A&M out of the west, serving as their lone rotating opponent for the year. Tennessee’s protected matchup with Alabama will take place in its traditional spot — October 21st in Tuscaloosa.
Tennessee-Georgia, which will be played in Knoxville in 2023, will take place as late as it ever has on November 18th.
The toughest stretch of the season for the Vols — Texas A&M, at Alabama, at Kentucky — will come after a bye week on October 7th.
Tennessee will open the 2023 season in Nashville with a non-conference game against Virginia. That date replaces a roadtrip to BYU, which was canceled this summer. Austin Peay, UTSA and UConn round out the non-conference slate. That UTSA matchup is already intriguing, considering how good the Roadrunners have been in the last few years.
