No. 21 Tennessee will be rocking a traditional look when it takes the field for its home opener against Missouri on Saturday afternoon.
The Vols will wear their white pants, orange jerseys and white helmets in the first 2020 game at Neyland Stadium, according to the Tennessee football Twitter account. The tweet depicted Brandon Johnson, Deandre Johnson, Brandon Kennedy and Alontae Taylor in the gameday uniforms.

Missouri will wear black pants, white jerseys and black helmets on Saturday.
Tennessee debuted a pair of new patches on the right side of the jersey last week against South Carolina. One of them is a “No. 45 JTM” patch, honoring the late Johnny Majors, who passed away in June.
The second patch contains a black and white hand forming the University of Tennessee torch. This “unity patch” is meant to recognize protests against racial injustice and inequality that players and coaches have been vocal about for the last few months.
Tennessee is also expected to wear black uniforms at some point this season, but those jerseys have not been released yet.
The Vols and Tigers are going to kick off at noon ET on the SEC Network.
