Tennessee Volunteers set to face off against the Ole Miss Rebels this Saturday

In next Saturday’s showdown versus Tennessee, Ole Miss will undoubtedly be the favorite, thanks to their blistering form. The Volunteers, on the other hand, should not be taken lightly as well. Tennessee beat South Carolina by 25 points at home Thursday afternoon after running past Missouri on the road last weekend.

Hendon Hooker was the star for Tennessee as he threw for 225 yards and three touchdowns on 17-of-23 passing for 225 yards and three touchdowns. If Hooker has a good weekend, the Volunteers may find themselves in a shootout with the Rebels next weekend. After all, Ole Miss recently defeated Arkansas by 52 points on Saturday.
