There’s not a lot going on prior to Saturday, so if you need to get some stuff done, use your Thursday and Friday well.
The noon slate features a couple of past Vols’ opponents in Florida and Kentucky, but both should roll against lesser opponents. If you’re looking for something that might be a bit more enjoyable, check out No. 12 Syracuse and No. 3 Notre Dame at 2:30 on NBC. I know, it’s dumb for it to be on at 2:30, but hey.
Tennessee hosts Missouri at 3:30 on CBS, so that’s your main appointment for the day, but keep an eye on the score in the game between No. 9 West Virginia and Oklahoma State. Could be some fireworks there.
In the evening, evenly matched No. 16 Iowa State and No. 15 Texas meet for what should be a good game, and No. 24 Cincinnati has what may be the best chance to knock off an undefeated No. 11 UCF.
