Josh Heupel has turned Tennessee around. The Vols won 11 games a year ago, their first 11-win season since 2002. The expectations in Ricky Top are high once again. While QB Hendon Hooker has moved on, Joe Milton and 5-star freshman Nico Lamaleava have a lot of upside to keep the offense finding frequent trips to the end zone. Tennessee has plenty of offensive options and scoring is not going to be a problem. Virginia had a disappointing first season under new head Coach Tony Elliot. They finished 3-7 and prospects this season are not high. The Tennessee defense made improvements a year ago, but this group may be a bit less impactful this season. The game is in Nashville, so obviously a semi-home game for Tennessee, and Virginia is 13-4 ATS to the OVER in their last 17 games on a neutral field. Make the play OVER the total.
