Dan Mullen sees a potential trap game for Tennessee this week against Kentucky as the Vols have Georgia on tap next week, and that game has all the ramifications of not only the SEC East title, but also College Football Playoff contenders.

“This week is such a big game for them because all anybody’s talking about around there is Tennessee-Georgia,” Mullen said on ESPNU on SiriusXM. “Kentucky’s a physical football team that plays very good defense. And when you are that type of team, you’re going to be able to go in and beat anybody at any time. I think that’s been the focus to bring it all back in. The biggest thing that helps them is they have a 24-year-old quarterback that is an older veteran guy that’ll take it, he’ll be at a very different level as everybody else, more mature almost pro approach to it in the game and they feed and respond off of him and listen to him. The leadership he has in the locker room will be critical for them.”
