The (25) Tennessee Volunteers travel to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Atlanta Monday, September 4th at 8:00 p.m. All of us want to win,” tight end Ethan Wolf said. “We don’t feel pressure that we have to go out and win for whoever. It’s all about us and it’s all about the work that we put in and how much we love to play this game. The pressure is not really as heavy as you’d think.

Both teams had to replace experienced quarterbacks — Joshua Dobbs at Tennessee, Justin Thomas at Georgia Tech. The Vols had another respectable season for the third straight year and won a third consecutive bowl game. Still, the season had to be considered a bit of a disappointment when they fell short of playing in the SEC Championship game. The Volunteers have a new quarterback to break in. Quarterback Quinten Dormady will have an opportunity to lead the Tennessee offense in 2017, starting with Georgia Tech.
HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: The Georgia Tech campus is less than 2 miles from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, so it would be logical to assume this is essentially a home game for the Yellow Jackets. But Tennessee has a much larger fan base, so there will definitely be plenty of orange in the sellout crowd of more than 70,000. For sure, this will have the feel of a true neutral-site game. There is plenty of historical significance, as well. Once bitter rivals in the SEC, this will be first meeting between the schools since 1987.
