The Vols have been surprisingly competitive this year under new head coach Jeremy Pruitt after inheriting the mess left by Butch Jones. Tennessee is actually very much in the running for a bowl game, but to get there, they’ll need to get two mores wins from their matchups with Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt.
So, that Week 11 clash will be a big home game for Tennessee, and it will be a big test for a Kentucky team that will be coming off one of the most important games in program history, even if it was a loss. Kentucky can still get to a New Year’s Six bowl if they win out, but a loss to the Vols could kill those hopes.
On Saturday night, the SEC announced that Kentucky vs. Tennessee will be broadcast on the SEC Network at 3:30 pm EST.
