The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles come into this one looking for a huge upset for their first win, sitting at 0-2 following a 26-0 loss to Furman last time out. Davis Shanley has thrown for 219 yards, a touchdown and 4 interceptions on 45.5% passing while David Gist has 104 rushing yards with a score and Quinton Cross leads Tennessee Tech’s receivers with 10 catches for 94 yards this season.
The Tennessee Volunteers come into this one looking to rebound from a 41-34 loss to Pitt in their last game.

Tennessee Tech is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Saturday road games. Tennessee is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 September games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 week 3 games.
This is a big amount of points to give up with Tennessee, but the Vols are simply the bigger, stronger and better team here. You have to be concerned that maybe their foot will come off of the gas like it did against Bowling Green, costing you a cover if you had Tennessee in that game, but I think the Vols don’t make a mess of this one and handle business in a big way. Give me Tennessee here and lay the points.
