Each week, Rocky Top Insider will take a look at how all 12 opponents on Tennessee’s 2023 schedule fared.

From South Carolina to Virginia, let’s take a look at how the Vols’ 2023 opponents in the tenth week of the college football season.

Week 1 Opponent: Virginia Cavaliers

Virginia turned in a disappointing effort against Georgia Tech in Charlottesville, losing 45-17. The loss marked the Cavaliers’ seventh of the season, making them non-bowl eligible.

Virginia is 2-7 with a 1-4 ACC record this season.

Week 2 Opponent: Austin Peay Governors

The Governors topped Eastern Kentucky in an overtime thriller, 33-30. Austin Peay are now winners of seven straight since the Tennessee loss and are 7-2 on the season.

Week 3 Opponent: Florida Gators

Florida lost in overtime to Arkansas 39-36 in The Swamp. The loss was massive for Florida as they are still a win away from bowl eligibility and won’t be favored in their final three games at LSU, at Missouri and vs. Florida State.

The Gators are 5-4 and 3-3 in SEC games.

Week 4 Opponent: UTSA Roadrunners

UTSA’s winning streak continued as the Roadrunners beat North Texas 37-29 on the road. It marked the fifth consecutive sin for UTSA since the Tennessee loss and they are now bowl eligible with a 6-3 (5-0 conf.) record.

Week 5 Opponent: South Carolina Gamecocks

South Carolina got back on track with a 38-28 win over Jacksonville State, snapping a four-game losing streak. The Gamecocks improved to 3-6 (1-5 SEC) on the season.

Week 6 Opponent: Texas A&M Aggies

The Aggies lost a thriller on the road to Ole Miss, 38-35. Texas A&M dropped to 5-4 (3-3 SEC) on the season.

Week 7 Opponent: Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama turned in quite possibly their best performance of the season last weekend in a 42-28 win over LSU in Tuscaloosa. The big win propelled the Tide to a 8-1 overall record and perfect 6-0 SEC mark.
Alabama has all but punched their ticket to Atlanta where they will likely face Georgia in the SEC Championship.
Week 8 Opponent: Kentucky Wildcats
Kentucky blasted Mississippi State 24-3 on the road to get back in the win column for the first time since September.
The Wildcats are now bowl eligible with a 6-3 (3-3 SEC) record.

Week 9 Opponent: UConn Huskies

UConn was blown out by Tennessee in Knoxville for the Vols’ homecoming, 59-3. The Huskies are now a dreadful 1-8 on the season.

Week 10 Opponent: Missouri Tigers

Missouri fought close with No. 2 Georgia but ultimately fell in Athens, 30-21. The Tigers showed they are legit, however, and host the Vols in CoMo this week.
Missouri is 7-2 (3-2 SEC) this year.

Week 11 Opponent: Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia got by Missouri at home with a nine-point win. It wasn’t perfect, but the Bulldogs kept their undefeated season alive and are now 9-0 (6-0 SEC) this season. They still haven’t lost since the SEC Championship in 2021.

Week 12 Opponent: Vanderbilt Commodores

Vanderbilt’s losing streak extended to seven games with a 31-15 loss to Auburn in Nashville. The Commodores are parked dead last in the SEC East with a 2-8 (0-6 SEC) record.
