    Tennessee football will wear its classic orange jerseys and white pants in Saturday’s matchup with Tennessee Tech, the team announced on its Twitter Thursday.

    The Vols are 1-0 in their classic home jerseys this season, defeating Bowling Green in the season opener. Tennessee lost to Pitt last week wearing its all orange uniforms.

    Tennessee is looking to bounce back from the first loss of the Josh Heupel against a Tennessee Tech team that lost badly to Samford and Furman the first two weeks the season.

    The Vols’ quarterback situation is still unsettled heading into the matchup as is the availability of several key Tennessee players.

    Tennessee defensive end Byron Young will make his debut Saturday after missing the first two games due to eligibility concerns.

    The Vols and Golden Eagles kick off from Neyland Stadium at noon ET. The SEC Network Alternate Channel and ESPN+ will broadcast the game.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
