Tennessee opened up their 2019 season on Saturday, but it didn’t go according to plan in the slightest.

The Vols dropped their season opener to Georgia State in Neyland Stadium on Saturday, falling by a score of 38-30. Tennessee turned the ball over three times and were out-rushed by the Panthers during the game.

The RTI team grades Tennessee’s performance on a position-by-position basis after every game. Managing editor Nathanael Rutherford and staff writer Ben McKee share their grades after the Vols’ embarrassing loss on Saturday.
