WATCH: Tennessee Football Music City Bowl Practice Highlights in Nashville

Purdue, Tennessee Music City Bowl

The Vols are in Nashville and the team is getting ready for the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30. Tennessee will take on an impressive Purdue team that finished with a regular-season record of 8-4 in 2021.

As the Vols continue to prepare for the game, the Tennessee team has been holding practices at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville. But for these Tennessee players, specifically quarterback Hendon Hooker, it’s about preparing for this game like it has been any other game on the schedule.

“In a sense, I just feel like when I come out and I am relaxed, I just take care of business,” Hooker said to the media on Monday afternoon. “I take care of my simple reads. It helps the offense move smoothly and move the ball a little bit better and operate a little bit better so it slows down my thinking.”

Yet, at the same time, the players also know that this is an important game to close an important inaugural season for head coach Josh Heupel.

“It’s like a statement game, if that makes sense,” Tennessee offensive lineman Jerome Carvin said to the media. “We have to show what we can do, especially with this offense and the team that we’re playing against. We are playing a really good Big 10 team. It’s a statement game.”

Below are the highlights from the Tennessee football practice from Vanderbilt Stadium on Monday.
