2017 Schedule
3-1, 5th in SEC - East

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

How long has it been for Tennessee since the Vols last beat an AP Top 10 SEC opponent at home? Try 1999 when sixth-ranked Tennessee defeated 10th-ranked Georgia 37-20. Phillip Fulmer was in his seventh full season as the Vols' head coach, and current USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin was the Vols' quarterback. Tennessee, 0-24 in all games against Top 10 foes going back to the start of Fulmer's final season in 2008, will be trying to end that drought when No. 7 Georgia comes to Neyland Stadium on Saturday.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

New Tennessee athletic director John Currie does not want to fire Butch Jones, and has made that clear. But games like today's -- a listless performance against an 0-4 UMass team that Tennessee couldn't put away until the final minute, before a largely empty Neyland Stadium -- hurt Jones. The Vols haven't looked great in three of four games, despite a 3-1 record. The Georgia game will be huge for the fifth-year coach.
