5 keys for Tennessee football vs Georgia Tech

ATLANTA — Tennessee has invested a lot of time into the opening game against Georgia Tech — far more than the 1/12 portion of the regular season schedule that it represents.

Coach Butch Jones understands momentum, and he knows better than anyone what a victory against the Yellow Jackets in tonight’s 8 p.m. (TV: ESPN) showdown at Mercedes-Benz Stadium would represent.

Tennessee left tackle Drew Richmond made some bad off-field decisions and got himself suspended for the opening game by breaking team rules.

No player on defense has more pressure on him tonight in Atlanta than McKenzie, who has flashed brilliance at times, but has yet to win the highest praise of the coaching staff and teammates.

Senior Kendal Vickers has been appointed a game week captain, a reward for his tremendous offseason and his history of soldiering through bumps and bruises while producing the most consistent results.
