ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Tennessee's remaining games
The Tennessee Volunteers suffered one of the worst losses of Week 1, falling 38-30 at home to Georgia State.
That’s a huge setback in a season that many expected the Vols to take a step forward and compete for a bowl berth. So, can Jeremy Pruitt’s squad turn things around quickly?
ESPN’s updated FPI ratings project the Vols to finish 4-8. Here are Tennessee’s expected win percentages for their remaining 11 games:
- vs. BYU — 72.9%
- vs. Chattanooga — 97.7%
- at Florida — 17.2%
- vs. Georgia — 14.9%
- vs. Mississippi State — 39.2%
- at Alabama — 4.3%
- vs. South Carolina — 49.7%
- vs. UAB — 93.9%
- at Kentucky — 34.4%
- at Mizzou — 41.8%
- vs. Vanderbilt — 71.5%
Obviously, 4-8 won’t make it to a bowl game. However, that South Carolina game is basically a toss-up. Can the Vols win that one, take care of business against the teams they’re supposed to beat and spring an upset along the way?
