How Josh Heupel could dunk on Jeremy Pruitt during his first season The Volunteer State

    • Sports

The pinnacle of the Jeremy Pruitt era came in 2019.

Tennessee started 0-2 before rebounding and qualifying for the Gator Bowl, where the Vols rallied to defeat Indiana 23-22 to cap an 8-5 season.

We later learned Tennessee's 2019 season was fool's gold. Pruitt flopped in 2020, and Tennessee fired him after the season amid an NCAA investigation into alleged recruiting violations by Pruitt's staff.

On this edition of "The Volunteer State," Blake Toppmeyer of the USA TODAY Network and the News Sentinel's John Adams and Adam Sparks preview UT's game against the Wildcats and how it has shifted toward a game Tennessee should expect to win after UK got thumped by Mississippi State on Saturday.
