The Bobcats look to build off their first win of the season when they head into Tennessee to take on the
#15 team in the country.
Tennessee fell in the rankings after their struggle Week 1 and continue to try and fight back up the rankings after a win over Virginia Tech in Week 2.
The Bobcats rebounded from a tough Week 1 triple overtime loss as they went into Kansas and controlled the game from the opening kickoff.
Ohio finished with nearly 500 yards of offense with 329 of their yards coming on the ground.
To have any success here against the #15 team in the country, the Bobcats must solidify that same run game early. Expect RB Dorian Brown and QB Greg Windham to get a lot of schedule designed run plays to try and control the tempo.
Last week, the duo combined for over 250 yards on the ground. They’ll have to probably even surpass that for the Bobcats to stand any chance in this one.
#15 Tennessee Volunteers
The Volunteers Week 1 struggles really set them back in terms of the BCS Playoff race. However, their response in Week 2 has them climbing back up the rankings.
Tennessee played in front of the biggest crowd in history last week, as they routed Virginia Tech 45-24. It was a far better performance as Tennessee controlled the game from the outset.
Volunteers QB Joshua Dobbs wasn’t asked to do much through the air in Week 2, as he compiled just 91 yards. Dobbs did throw for 3 touchdowns despite the low yardage.
Expect Tennessee to run the same gameplan here against the Bobcats that they used against the Hokies.
The Volunteers saw themselves go down 14-0 early, but not only picked up the tempo, but started getting Dobbs out of the pocket and allowing him the pass/run option.
They’re a much more physical team than Ohio. Expect them to try and wear them down early in the 1st half and run away with this game as it goes on.
