Tennessee reveals no spring game in 2022, announces alternate plans
Tennessee is heading into Year 2 under coach Josh Heupel with lofty expectations.
However, fans will have to wait until this fall to get their first look at the 2022 Vols. That’s because the annual Orange & White spring scrimmage won’t be played this year.
Per a release from the school, construction at Neyland Stadium is preventing a public scrimmage from being played:
Due to construction in Neyland Stadium and scheduling conflicts with other venues, the traditional Orange & White Game will not be played this spring.
Instead, Tennessee said it will host an “All Vol Weekend,” with lots of events for fans:
Tennessee Athletics will host “All Vol Weekend,” a fan-friendly spring weekend featuring multiple Volunteer teams in action and a fan fest tailgate, April 7-10 on campus.
Baseball welcomes Missouri for a three-game series at Lindsey Nelson Stadium with first pitches set for 6:30 p.m. Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. Fans will be treated to a postgame fireworks show on Saturday evening. All three contests are sold out.
Tennessee opens the 2022 season at home against Ball State on Saturday, Sept. 3.
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.
