    Tennessee is wearing its orange jerseys and orange pants for Saturday’s Senior Day matchup against Vanderbilt, the Vols announced on Twitter Wednesday.

    Saturday will mark the third time that Tennessee has worn it all orange uniforms this season. The Vols are 0-2 in the combination including losses to Pittsburgh and Ole Miss.

    Tennessee is 3-0 in its classic home uniforms, 1-1 in its white jerseys and orange pants, 1-1 in its all white uniforms and 1-1 in its alternate black uniforms.

    Vanderbilt has yet to announce its uniform combination.

    Tennessee is looking to earn its seventh win of the season and to improve to 4-4 in SEC play in Josh Heupel’s inaugural season.

    The Vols are coming off a dominant 60-14 victory over South Alabama. Tennessee’s offense scored touchdowns every possession Hendon Hooker was in the game as the Vols reached bowl eligibility.

    First year head coach Clark Lea is looking to get his first SEC win in Saturday’s game. Vanderbilt is 2-8 on the season with a loss to ETSU.

    The Commodores played better in last week’s 31-17 loss to Ole Miss as new starting quarterback Mike Wright recorded 302 yards.

    Tennessee and Vanderbilt kick off from Neyland Stadium at 3:45 p.m. ET. The SEC Network will broadcast the game.
