KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The 19th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers should be well-rested coming off an open date. They need edit considering they start a critical three-game stretch Saturday at home against Texas A&M.

The Vols then hit the road for a two-game road swing at No. 11 Alabama and then No. 24 Kentucky. The Aggies A&M (4-2, 2-1 SEC) come in looking to bounce back from a disappointing 26-20 loss to Alabama.

The home fans should have Tennessee focused on Texas A&M’s second visit to Neyland Stadium. This will be the seventh time Vols’ fans have turned the stands into an orange and white checkerboard with another sellout crowd on hand.

“This is a big football game that is coming up, really good football team that we are playing,” Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said. “Checker Neyland. Excited to see all of our fans and the atmosphere Saturday afternoon. I know our guys and our staff are ready to get back on the field.”
