We have reached week two of the college football season and both of these teams are trying to bounce back from a week one loss.
In this game the BYU Cougars make the trip to Neyland Stadium to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.
There is a feeling that this BYU Cougars team can be better this season, but it’s quite the tough schedule to start off the season.
In the first week of the season took on the Utah Utes and although they hung around early, they just didn’t have the offense late to keep it close and that led to a loss.
It’s hard to know if that was because their offense isn’t going to be that good this year, or if it was just from playing a good Utes defense.
At quarterback, the Cougars are led by Zach Wilson who played decently but did throw two interceptions and that is concerning.
On the defensive side they did give up 30 points, including 262 of them on the ground. In this game that run defense is going to need to be better.
On the other side of this matchup is the Tennessee Volunteers who were supposed to have a better team this year, but if week one says anything, that isn’t going to be the case.
They battled against Georgia State, a team that only had two wins last year, and they lost by eight points and if it wasn’t for a last second touchdown, it would have been worse.
The defense was the biggest issue giving up 38 points, and it honestly looked like they didn’t want to be on the football field.
On the offensive side they were okay, but not great. Junior quarterback Jarrett Guarantano threw for 311 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
In this game the defense is going to need to be better. The Cougars aren’t an elite offensive team, so the defense can’t make it look like they are.
There are already a ton of upset Volunteers fans, and if they start this season off 0-2, there might be riots in the streets.

This isn’t a game I love, but I think the first game performance that was more indicative of their team is the Cougars.

I think what happened in week one is a real wakeup call to the Volunteers and they are going to come out with anger in this game.
The Volunteers are going to run up the score, and the Cougars aren’t going to be able to keep up. Back the Volunteers to win this game and cover the spread.
