After months of waiting with great anticipation, Tennessee’s 2024 football schedule was officially revealed on Wednesday night during ESPN’s SEC Schedule Reveal show.

The big note on Tennessee’s schedule this season is the addition of unfamiliar opponents. Tennessee has two games against former SEC West teams in Arkansas and Mississippi State as well as a road contest against SEC newcomer Oklahoma early in the season.

The Vols have familiar opponents on the schedule, too, including Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt.

While the conference opponents have been out since June, Wednesday night’s broadcast gives us a look at the exact dates that Tennessee’s games will fall on – including the two open dates.

With the addition of Texas and Oklahoma into the league, the 2024 season will be the SEC’s first season without divisions since 1991. Here’s a look at Tennessee’s full 2024 football schedule and some quick reactions and thoughts following the reveal show:

Key U.T. Football Schedule Notes:

  • The Third Saturday in October matchup isn’t going anywhere. Tennessee will host Alabama on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2024.
  • The Vols have massive back-to-back home games coming up in October against Florida and Alabama, respectively. The two-week stretch is tough but allows Tennessee the opportunity to find revenge on both losses during the 2023 season.
  • Tennessee’s Oklahoma matchup will be the Vols’ (and QB Nico Iamaleava’s) first big true road test in Week 4. That game will also serve as Josh Heupel’s return to Oklahoma after winning a National Championship with the Sooners in 2000.
  • Tennessee will take on North Carolina State in the second week of the season. NC State announced the acquisition of transfer quarterback Grayson McCall on Wednesday morning.
  • The Vols will have two bye weeks this season: one in late September and one in late October.
  • Tennessee not having to travel on the road from October 5 to November 16 is a pretty crazy thought.
  • Excluding Georgia, Tennessee’s final five opponents (UK, MSU, UTEP, VU) combined for just 17 wins last season – and that’s with Kentucky’s seven wins taking out a big chunk of that.
