24. SEC adapting to help league crown champion during pandemic -

Commissioner Greg Sankey and the Southeastern Conference have their finish line in sight: The league championship game is set for Dec. 19 in Atlanta.

The division champs might not be the only SEC teams playing that day.

25. Struggling Volunteers working to fix 3rd quarter breakdowns -

The Tennessee Volunteers have been able to take leads into halftime. Unfortunately, when they come out of the locker room for the third quarter, that's when the horror show starts.

The Vols (2-4) have lost four straight in part because they've been outscored 61-7 in the third quarter. They wound up blowing a 13-0 lead at Arkansas by giving up 24 unanswered points in the third quarter of the 24-13 loss.

26. Arkansas, Tennessee look to recover from tough losses -

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas coach Sam Pittman developed a friendship with Tennessee assistant Jim Chaney well before they landed on SEC coaching staffs.

It will get put on hold when Arkansas (2-3) hosts the Volunteers (2-3) on Saturday.

27. No. 2 Alabama looks to keep rolling vs struggling Tennessee -

By the numbers, Alabama-Tennessee isn't much of a rivalry anymore with the Crimson Tide having won 13 straight.

Don't tell that to Alabama fans.

"I know it's real big for the state of Alabama," said Crimson Tide nose guard D.J. Dale, a native of Birmingham, Alabama. "I look at it as them just being the next opponent, just taking it week by week and going into this week 0-0 and hopefully after the game we're 1-0."

28. Tide goes for 14th straight in 'Third Saturday in October' -

Here are things to watch in Week 5 in the Southeastern Conference:


Apologies to the purists: the "Third Saturday in October" rivalry between No. 2 Alabama and Tennessee actually falls on the fourth weekend of the month. But it's one of the few games that remained in its original spot when the Southeastern Conference ripped up schedules and switched to a 10-game, league-only setup because of COVID-19 concerns. No one will give the Volunteers a shot — oddsmakers installed them as 21-point home underdogs — after consecutive drubbings at Georgia and against Kentucky that prompted Jeremy Pruitt to fire defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh. But Tennessee led the Bulldogs 21-17 at halftime and would have had a better shot against the Wildcats if not for four consecutive turnovers, including two interceptions returned for touchdowns, in the first half. And last year in Tuscaloosa, the Vols settled for two field goals in the red zone and trailed 28-13 in the fourth when Jarrett Guarantano fumbled at the goal line. Trevon Diggs recovered and took it 100 yards the other way for a game-sealing score that gave the Tide its 13th consecutive victory in the series. Maybe Tennessee will have better luck Saturday since Alabama is coming off the SEC's final game featuring undefeated teams in 2020.

29. Tennessee has lots to work on after snapping winning streak -

The 18th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers have plenty of areas to work on after have their eight-game winning streak ended.

Nobody knows how many games will actually be played. Nobody knows how many players will be available. Nobody knows how many spectators will be allowed to watch at any particular game.

Nobody knows much of anything for certain in a season unlike any other in the history of college football.

33. NCAA approves waiver for Tennessee's Mays -

KNOXVILLE (AP) — The NCAA notified No. 15 Tennessee on Thursday that offensive lineman Cade Mays' appeal for a waiver to play immediately has been approved.

35. Pruitt works to get ahead of Black Lives Matter unrest -

38. SEC's recruiting dominance particularly apparent this year -

39. Suddenly, UT’s offensive line is envy of SEC -

For much of the last few seasons, Tennessee’s offensive line has been the subject of ridicule and frustration.

But thanks to a big announcement, solid recruiting and a severed pinky finger, the unit might transform into the team’s biggest strength in 2020.

40. Comeback in bowl game a reflection of Vols’ season -

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tennessee sure knows how to get out of a huge hole.

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee cornerback Bryce Thompson will travel to the Volunteers' game at No. 9 Florida after getting arrested last month on a misdemeanor domestic assault charge.

Reaching a bowl game and beating Vanderbilt used to be foregone conclusions for the Tennessee football team.

63. No questions asked: Guarantano owns QB position -

One player on Tennessee’s roster was the clear-cut starter at his position months before the season started. The coaches didn’t even need to pretend otherwise to create competition.

Jarrett Guarantano is Tennessee’s quarterback.

64. Reinvigorated Jennings brings 'alpha male' to season -

78. Top Middle Tennessee residential sales for November 2018 -

Top residential real estate sales, November 2018, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

79. Tennessee has disappointing finish to Pruitt's 1st season -

Perhaps the clearest evidence of Tennessee's fall over the last decade is how the Volunteers have lost their status as the premier program in their own state.

Tennessee (5-7) squandered an opportunity to earn a bowl bid in coach Jeremy Pruitt's first season by losing 38-13 at Vanderbilt in its regular-season finale. This marks the third straight year that Tennessee has lost to Vanderbilt, an in-state rival it has traditionally dominated.

80. Vandy senior QB looking for rare 3rd straight win over Vols -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Kyle Shurmur has been chasing down a handful of Vanderbilt passing records held by Jay Cutler all season long.

82. UT's Phillips doesn’t want to watch any bowl games -

Sitting on the couch watching bowl games on television might be entertaining for the average fan.

83. Kelly savors a season he could have skipped -

84. Vols OL Smith out indefinitely due to blood clots in lungs -

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee offensive tackle Trey Smith is out indefinitely after doctors discovered blood clots in his lungs, a recurrence of an issue that also caused him to miss spring practice.

Tennessee football coach Jeremy Pruitt took a swig of water as he stood behind the podium, trying to choke back his emotions.

90. Vols-Gators once meant something. Not as much now -

It used to be appointment viewing for every college football fan. It used to determine the SEC champion and factor into the national title chase.

But the rivalry between Tennessee and Florida has lost much of its luster over the last decade, with not much at stake beyond bragging rights.

Perspective can hit a young guy like a ton of bricks. Anytime. Anywhere. Just a couple weeks ago, Jonathan Kongbo was walking across a bridge, heading from the University of Tennessee campus to downtown Knoxville.

95. Graduate transfers bring winning experience to Vols' rebuild -

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee has added players from some of the nation's most successful programs in an attempt to jump-start the Volunteers' return to Southeastern Conference contention.

Those three teams posted a combined 32-9 record last season, while Tennessee went 4-8 and set a school record for losses .

96. Expectations low for Pruitt’s first season -
