Tennessee VS Indiana: Preview & Prediction

by | Dec 31, 2019 | Analysis, Gameday

By Luke Thomas

It seems as if it was eons ago when Tennessee started off their season 1-4 with losses to the Georgia State Panthers, BYU Cougars, Florida Gators, and Georgia Bulldogs; a bowl game seemed to be off of the table as it would take a near-perfect finish to surpass the 6 win threshold required to gain entry to the postseason. Some of the Vols’ fans, who were beginning to become very nervous with Tennessee’s horrendous start to the season, even began to lose faith in Jeremy Pruitt as Tennessee’s head coach.

Luckily, Jeremy Pruitt and the Volunteers began to pull the season together following the Vols’ loss to the Georgia Bulldogs. Tennessee lost only one game after their loss to the Bulldogs, which came against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Bryant-Denny Stadium, and finished the regular season 7-5 with victories over the Chattanooga Mocs, Mississippi State Bulldogs, South Carolina Gamecocks, UAB Blazers, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers, and Vanderbilt Commodores to qualify for their first Bowl Game since the 2016 Music City Bowl.

A little over a year ago, the University of Tennessee’s talented cornerback, Bryce Thompson, was in hot water when a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence sidelined his promising career. Fans wondered if his future would be hampered by character issues. Despite some backlash, Head Coach Jeremy Pruitt determined that suspending Thompson for the first two games of the 2019 season would be sufficient, as long as the sophomore defensive back learned from the experience and kept his nose clean. It didn’t take long for Thompson to prove to his coach and team that he could walk the straight and narrow.
