About the Vols
The Vols are hoping to start off strong following a less-than-stellar season last year. They finished 5-7, with only 2 SEC victories.
This is Jeremy Pruitt’s second season as head coach, and he’s looking to showcase a stronger team than the one that finished bottom of the SEC East last year.
Pruitt brought in some impressive help on his coaching staff, namely Jim Chaney. Hopefully, with Chaney and Tee Martin back in Knoxville, Jarrett Guarantano can increase his total passing yards this season.
About the Panthers
The Georgia State Panthers had an even tougher season than the Vols in 2018-2019.
The Panthers only took home 2 wins and finished dead last in the Sun Belt East, making Pounce one very sad panther.
Georgia State is bringing back their senior quarterback Dan Ellington, who has proven to be capable after passing for over 2,100 yards last season.
