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.
