    The Tennessee Volunteers will bring out a certain away uniform for the first time in the Josh Heupel era this Saturday.

    With Missouri planning to wear all-black uniforms this weekend, Tennessee will be breaking out the all-white “Stormtrooper” look against the Tigers.

    The announcement was made by Tennessee Football on Twitter on Thursday evening.

    Saturday’s game will be the second road test of the year for the Vols. In addition, their first trip away from Knoxville came last week against Florida. During the game against the Gators, Tennessee broke out “them orange britches” to go along with their white jerseys and white helmets.

    However, it does look like Tennessee is going to switch things up this weekend. So for the first time this season, Tennessee will wear their all-white uniforms.

    Week five’s game between Tennessee and Missouri will be crucial for each team. With the two sitting at the same record, both Tennessee and Missouri will try to jump over the .500 mark heading into week six.

    On Thursday, Tennessee HC Josh Heupel spoke to the media and gave a vague update on the Vols’ quarterback situation. For a complete rundown of Heupel’s final thoughts before the team heads to Missouri, click here.
