Tennessee and Virginia Tech Clash In Battle at Bristol

The Tennessee Volunteers and Virginia Tech Hokies will clash for the first time since the 2009 Chick-Fil-A Bowl when they take to Bristol Motor Speedway Saturday. Tennessee will be putting their seven-game winning streak on the line when they take on VT.

SHARK BITES
  • Virginia Tech is 16-2 in their past 18 games in Week 2.
  • The UNDER is 5-2 in Tennessee’s past seven games following a win.
  • The OVER is 5-0 in Virginia Tech’s past five outings against the SEC.

We are just one week into the college football season and there are already major question marks surrounding Tennessee. The Volunteers entered the season with their highest ranking since 2006 and proceeded to just barely get past an Appalachian State team that dropped their past six meetings against Power Five teams by at least 28 points. It is still yet to be seen if Tennessee and quarterback Joshua Dobbs can run an efficient passing offense.

Virginia Tech opened the Justin Fuente era by easily handling Liberty in Week 1. It appears that Fuente made the right call by naming Jerod Evans the starter, as the QB went 20 of 32 with four touchdowns.
