    Tennessee’s week five matchup at Missouri will kick off at noon ET and the SEC Network will broadcast the game.

    Under second year head coach Eli Drinkwitz, the Tigers are currently 2-1 with wins over Central Michigan and Southeast Missouri State and a road loss at Kentucky.

    The Tigers head on the road in week four to take on 3-0 Boston College.

    Tennessee is 2-1 heading into its SEC opener at Florida Saturday. The Vols are three-touchdown underdogs and looking for their first win in Gainesville since 2003.

    Tennessee has won two straight games over Missouri, including a 35-12 blowout win over the Tigers last season at Neyland Stadium.

    Since that win, Tennessee has won just one of its last eight SEC games. The Vols are looking to improve upon that streak this week at Florida, but if the spread has any indication, Tennessee could be looking to end that snide in Columbia.

    This season, the Vols will have to win at Faurot Field, where Tennessee won in 2019 and is 2-2 since the Tigers joined the SEC in 2012. Tennessee is 4-5 against Missouri since they joined the conference.

    Other major week five SEC matchups include Arkansas at Georgia at noon ET on ESPN, Ole Miss at Alabama at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS and Auburn at LSU at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    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.
