Will Tennessee make a bowl? ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Vols' last two games
The Tennessee Volunteers improved to 5-5 on the season with an impressive win over Kentucky on Saturday afternoon.
Now, first-year coach Jeremy Pruitt only needs one more win to get his team eligible for a bowl, and the schedule is certainly set up to make that happen.
However, ESPN’s FPI is still lower on the Vols than most, giving them a less-than-50-percent chance to win each of their two remaining games. Here’s what FPI thinks of the Vols’ chances to win:
- vs. Mizzou — 31.6%
- at Vanderbilt — 45.6%
Of course, that won’t matter to Pruitt and his squad. They weren’t given much of a chance to beat Kentucky on Saturday (or at Auburn earlier this year, for that matter).
It’ll be interesting to see if the Vols can take care of business and earn the extra practices that come along with a bowl berth.
