Tennessee started out the 2019 season by laying a fat, disgusting egg on the Neyland Stadium grass.
The Vols were stunned on Saturday afternoon in front of only 85,000 fans in attendance, as Georgia State came into Knoxville and delivered Tennessee a 38-30 loss. The game marked the first time since 2008 that Tennessee has lost to a non-Power Five opponent, and it’s the first time ever the Vols have lost to a Sun Belt team.
After the game, Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt spoke with the media. The second-year head coach addressed his team’s sloppy play, whether or not he thought effort was an issue in the game, young players starting their first game for UT, and much more.
You can hear everything Pruitt had to say here:
