The Tennessee Volunteers took down South Carolina to start the 2020 season last weekend. Next up, the Vols host the Missouri Tigers on Saturday.

The Tigers lost to No. 2 Alabama, but showed some flashes of promise during the 38-19 loss. Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt noticed.

During his Wednesday press conference, Pruitt praised Mizzou coach Eli Drinkwitz’s creativity on offense:

He also had some kind words for Mizzou QB Shawn Robinson, who didn’t have much time to throw against Alabama, but made some nice plays:

Tennessee is favored to win on Saturday, but it’s clear Pruitt isn’t taking the Tigers lightly as they prepare for the game. We’ll see which team comes out stronger on Saturday afternoon.
