Vols eager to start season tonight against Georgia Tech

KNOXVILLE — From impromptu games on the miniature basketball hoop in the team meeting room to comparing catches on the football launching machine during down periods at practice, John Kelly and Jauan Jennings have found ways to compete with each other over the last several months.

ESPN's A-team of Rece Davis and Kirk Herbstreit will broadcast the action as the college football world caps its first full weekend of the new season by seeing if the No.

Then the attention shifted to an injury-plagued defense that struggled down the stretch as the Vols squandered a chance to win the SEC East by losing to South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

A fresh storyline will have its first chapter written tonight as Tennessee debuts either Quinten Dormady or Jarrett Guarantano as its new starting quarterback in first-year offensive coordinator Larry Scott's system.

Defensively, Tennessee will be tested by Georgia Tech's flexbone attack and its cut blocks, especially after the news that starting middle linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. will miss this season after undergoing knee surgery last week.
