What you need to know about Tennessee

Tennessee is coming off an offensive explosion as the Vols outgained Missouri by 296 yards and won 62-24 on the road last week. The Vols were actually slight underdogs entering that game, so they vastly exceeded oddsmakers’ expectations. Running back Tiyon Evans had a stellar game for the Volunteers as he rushed for three TDs and 156 yards on 15 carries. 

One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Evans’ 92-yard touchdown rush in the first quarter. Quarterback Hendon Hooker is settling in as the clear-cut starter for the Vols and the Virginia Tech transfer was extremely impressive last week — throwing for 225 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 80 yards and another score on the ground.

What you need to know about South Carolina

South Carolina was sloppy with 92 yards of penalties and some other mistakes last week, but the Gamecocks came out on top 23-14 against Troy to snap a two game-losing streak. South Carolina opened SEC play 0-2 with losses to Georgia and Kentucky in its prior two games, but has won all three nonconference games.

The Gamecocks have been strong on defense, giving up just 17.4 points per game this season. They need to get going offensively, however, since they’ve yet to score more than 23 points against a FBS opponent. Running back Kevin Harris hasn’t been able to find his 2020 form as he’s averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. Quarterback Luke Doty is completing just 58.8 percent of his passes thus far, so those two players will look to turn it around against the Volts.
