5. Tennessee can take care of business
You can certainly question Butch Jones’ ability to win the big ones, and he’ll have to prove in 2016 that he can do that. But Tennessee proved down the stretch in 2015 that it can take care of business. Arkansas, arguably, is the only team that the Vols lost to in 2015 that had less talent than UT, and the Razorbacks showed later in the season that they can be a pretty good team themselves. After a frustrating start, the Vols easily could’ve slipped up at some point, but they won their last six and for the second straight year, won the bowl game that they were favored in.
