KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — University of Tennessee Volunteer fans are hoping to forget their frustration with the football team during the upcoming game against Georgia.
On Saturday, Tennessee sputtered its way to a 17-13 win over UMass in front of an announced attendance of 95,324. When asked about the team’s lack of passion against UMass, Coach Butch Jones said he thinks it was an isolated incident.
The Vols will play Georgia in Neyland at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Jones believes Georgia will be a tough game.
Evan Berry, Jakob Johnson and Latrell Williams will not be playing due to injuries.
Shy Tuttle’s injury was not caused by a teammate, according to Jones. Tuttle landed on a helmet.
Jones says the offensive linemen need to get better in order to run the football.
Jones spoke on Darrell Taylor, saying he is one of the leaders of the team.
SEC Nation will be hosting a pre-game show on campus.
