Tennessee football hosts Texas A&M at Neyland Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Vols are looking to continue a long winning streak and the Aggies are looking to end a long losing streak when the two SEC foes meet in Knoxville.

Josh Heupel’s Tennessee program is riding a 12-game home winning streak at Neyland Stadium entering the game while Jimbo Fisher’s Texas A&M program is riding a seven-game losing streak in true road games.

The last time Tennessee lost at the friendly confines of Neyland Stadium? Nov. 13, 2021 when Georgia knocked off the Vols in Knoxville. The last time Texas A&M won a true road game? Oct. 16, 2021 when the Aggies knocked off Missouri 35-14 in Columbia.

Texas A&M fell at Ole Miss and LSU to close the 2021 season, went 0-4 on the road last season and fell to Miami 48-33 at Hard Rock Stadium last month.

Not only has Texas A&M struggled on the road in recent years, Neyland Stadium is the first great road environment the Aggies have played in this season. There were less than 50,000 people at Hard Rock Stadium to watch the Hurricanes knock off Texas A&M and that’s the Aggies only true road game of the season.

While Texas A&M is starting backup quarterback Max Johnson while Conner Weigmen recovers from a season ending injury, the Neyland Stadium environment shouldn’t affect Johnson the way it might another backup quarterback with less experience.

In his two years at Texas A&M and two years at LSU, Johnson’s started 15 SEC games including road games at Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida and a number of others.

Tennessee and Texas A&M’s matchup in Neyland Stadium is a huge game for both teams. The Aggies are coming off a loss against Alabama and needs a victory to remain in the SEC West race. The Vols also already have a SEC loss and are facing two road challenges immediately following the Texas A&M game.

Kickoff at Neyland Stadium is at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. CBS is broadcasting the matchup.
