Jeremy Pruitt is entering his third year with Tennessee football and his Volunteers have plenty to prove after a solid end to the 2019 season.
When the 2019 season was just a few weeks old, it looked like Tennessee was the most disappointing team in the country and Jeremy Pruitt’s job was on the line.
Tennessee lost to Georgia State and BYU in back-to-back weeks to start the season and then the Volunteers were blown out by Florida and Georgia in consecutive games to end September and start October. The Volunteers rebounded in a big way, finishing 8-5 with a win over Indiana in the Gator Bowl.
The Volunteers won seven of the final eight games of the 2019 season, losing only to Alabama over the final two months of the season.
Heading into the 2020 season, Tennessee has a quarterback controversy. Will Brian Maurer beat out Jarrett Guarantano or will there be a new name to watch for, like a certain four-star incoming freshman?
Ty Chandler is back at running back and Eric Gray could be a breakout star in his second year, but will the offense have enough firepower to compete with the SEC’s big boys?
How will the Volunteers fare during the 2020 season?
