Tennessee drops hype video for Week 1 matchup against South Carolina featuring VFL Charles Davis
Neyland Stadium won’t echo with the sound of 100,000 fans this football season for Tennessee, but the Volunteers are nonetheless ready to get an unusual SEC campaign underway. They do so as a team looking to leapfrog SEC East favorites Florida and Georgia as they look to win their first division crown since 2007.
On Friday evening, the Vols dropped their hype video for their opening week game at South Carolina. And it featured a familiar voice: former Tennessee defensive back Charles Davis, a color commentator for the “NFL on CBS” and EA Sports’ “Madden NFL” series.
Tennessee has dominated the series over South Carolina with a mark of 26-10-2. That’s despite losing 5 of its last 6 visits to Williams-Brice Stadium, including its last 2 in the building. While the Gamecocks will keep that stat in mind as they try to spring a Week 1 upset, the Vols can take comfort in the fact that they’ll be favored to come away with a win in this one.
Kickoff is set for 7:30pm ET and will be televised on the SEC Network.
