The Tennessee Volunteers look for a bounce back victory after blowing last week’s game to Florida. Joshua Dobbs is completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 557 yards, five touchdowns and one interceptions. Dobbs has a touchdown pass in eight of his last 10 games. Ethan Wolf and Preston Williams have combined for 224 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Josh Malone has nine receptions. The Tennessee Volunteers ground game is averaging 248 yards per contest, and Jalen Hurd leads the way with 402 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 24.8 points and 394 yards per game. Jalen Reeves-Maybin leads the Vols with 41 tackles, Darrin Kirkland Jr. has two sacks and LaDarrell McNeil has two interceptions. Pig Howard, Darrell Miller and Ralph Abernathy IV are questionable.
The Razorbacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Volunteers are 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The Razorbacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Razorbacks are taking major steps backwards and now playing an angry Vols team that will be eager to get a nasty taste out of its mouth. It's hard to cap this game considering both teams have zero killer instinct, but I like the home team and Tennesseee just under a touchdown.
