    Tennessee is nine days away from kicking off its 2022 football season against Ball State inside the friendly confines of Neyland Stadium.

    There’s optimism around the Vols entering Josh Heupel’s second season as head coach. Tennessee overachieved a season ago, posting a 7-5 regular season record. Improvement on the field could send Tennessee to its best bowl game is years.

    The Vols last played in a Florida bowl game in 2019 and many of the preseason bowl projections have Tennessee facing strong opponents.

    From Orlando to Las Vegas,  see where media outlets project Tennessee to go bowling in 2022.
