    Tennessee sits at 3-5 (0-4 in the SEC) with four games remaining and needs to put together a run to earn their first bowl berth since 2010. To go bowling, the Vols need a 3-1 record in November with games at South Carolina and Vanderbilt and home games versus Kentucky and Missouri. Our own Houston Kress thinks the Vols can win out and go 7-5, but they just need to get to 6-6 to earn a bowl berth and several national sports outlets think the Vols get there.

    Here’s a roundup of this week’s bowl projections for the Volunteers.
