Paul Finebaum talks game that will define Tennessee
There’s been a lot of talk as to just where the Tennessee Volunteers stand as of late considering this is a team that is one of the only in the nation to remain undefeated and garnered even more attention after in knocked off Alabama, 52-49, in Neyland Stadium.
The Vols face the No. 19-ranked Kentucky Wildcats up next on the schedule and then will face No. 1-ranked Georgia on Nov. 5.
“The game that will define Tennessee is a week from Saturday,” Finebaum said. “They go to Athens. It will be the biggest game of the year in college football. Likely will be a (No. 1) vs. (No. 3) matchup. There’s a path into the Playoff equation with that coming out next week. they could conceivably hang around without winning but it’s unlikely. Much of that depends on Alabama.”
How Tennessee performs in that matchup will play a huge role into whether or not it can be considered a true contender moving forward in a tight push for the postseason. It will be interesting to see how things continue to play out in a loaded SEC this year.
Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
