SERIES HISTORY

Tigers lead series, 28-22-3

Tennessee trails in the all-time series with Auburn after winning just one of the past seven meetings. However, that victory came the last time the two programs met, when the unranked Vols went into Jordan-Hare and sprung the upset, defeating the 21st ranked Tigers 30-24 to record their first win over a ranked Auburn team since 1980. A win on Saturday would give Tennessee back-to-back wins against the Tigers for the first time since the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

November Road

Tennessee returns to action for the first time in 14 days after an unexpected open weekend. The Vols' scheduled home game against Texas A&M on Nov. 14 in Neyland Stadium was postponed due to a combination of positive COVID tests and contact tracing within the Texas A&M football program. That game is tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12 in Knoxville. All three of UT's currently scheduled November games are on the road, marking the first time since 1891 that the Vols will not play a home game during the month.

To'o To'o Tackling Machine

After a freshman All-America campaign in 2019, sophomore linebacker Henry To'o To'o leads the Vols in tackles (40) and tackles for loss (7.0) as a sophomore. He's tied for the SEC lead in tackles for loss with Auburn's Colby Wooden. In the season-opening win at South Carolina, he recorded his first career interception and returned it 32 yards for a touchdown. To'o To'o has recorded multiple tackles in 18 of the 19 career games he's played.

ABOUT AUBURN

Like Tennessee, Auburn is also coming off an unexpected open week after their game with Mississippi State was postponed.

The Tigers rank fourth in the SEC in scoring defense (22.8 ppg) and sixth in the conference in total offense (405.8 ppg).

Nix has passed for 1,407 yards and thrown nine touchdown passes while also rushing for 274 yards and three scores. He has three talented wide receivers to throw to in Seth Williams (28 rec, 511 yds, 3 TD), Anthony Schwartz (38 rec, 422 yds, 2 TD) and Eli Stove (21 rec, 201 yds, 3 TD). Williams ranks fourth in the conference in receiving yards per game (85.2) while Schwartz's 38 catches are tied for fourth in the league.

Auburn Game Notes


Auburn should be 3-3 in all fairness. The Birmingham referees just took that game from Arkansas and gave it to Auburn. Ole Miss got hosed against Auburn too but in the Arkansas game an obviously wrong call which directly and conclusively changed the outcome of the game.

This is not a hungover post. The Vols will Take on The barn door at Jordan Azz heir field and will attempt to do something positive on offense. This much I know to be true.

I would like to see a 4 qtr competitive game. Might be tough playing away with HB starting and a couple of younger receivers, but it's not 80K+ fans, so time to just do it.
Could be a blowout, but could be one small step for VolKind.
