The Vols host Mississippi State this Saturday at noon on the SEC Network. In addition to that, there’s the Red River Rivalry, a Top 25 SEC matchup, a Top 10 SEC matchup, and some future Vols opponents in action. Here’s when and where to find those games, along with some suggestions on how and why to watch them.
First up is the list curated just for Vols fans. The full schedule follows that.

There are three maybe-decent games on Friday night, although with the Vols game kicking at noon on Gameday, I wouldn’t recommend the Colorado-Oregon game that starts at 10:00, except for the whipper-snappers who haven’t figured out that sleep is important yet. #GetOffMyLawn
Gameday, October 12, 2019
The Vols kick the day off at noon on the SEC Network against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. At the same time, former opponent Georgia hosts future opponent South Carolina on ESPN. Meanwhile, the casual nation’s eyes will be on the Red River Rivalry on Fox, also at noon.
The main game in the afternoon slot is a Top 25 SEC matchup between No. 1 Alabama and No. 24 Texas A&M on CBS. There are two future Vols opponents in action in that slot, too, in Vanderbilt and UAB, so DVR them for scouting and maybe just check in with them live if the Tide-Aggies game gets out of hand.
The prime time slot features a Top 10 SEC matchup between the No. 7 Florida Gators (boo!) and the No. 5 LSU Tigers (Geaux Tigahs!) That one’s on ESPN at 8:00. Future opponent Missouri is also in action on ESPN2 at 7:00 against Ole Miss.
