Tennessee Stat Book
No. 19 Tennessee will be back on national television for its final game of the regular season.
The Volunteers' Nov. 24 game at Kentucky will be shown nationally by CBS (WVLT) and is set for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff as part of a double-header on the network.
That will be Tennessee's third appearance on CBS and its fifth nationally televised game this season.
Tennessee last appeared on national television Oct. 27, when it defeated South Carolina in overtime on ESPN.
UT enters next week's game with a 22-game winning streak over Kentucky, the longest active winning streak in the country.
Seven SEC games will be televised that weekend.
On Friday, Lincoln Financial will show Ole Miss at Mississippi State (12:30 p.m.) and CBS will air Arkansas at LSU (2:30 p.m.).
Other games to be televised Saturday: Georgia at Georgia Tech (ABC, 3:30 p.m.), Florida State at Florida (CBS, 5 p.m.), Clemson at South Carolina (ESPN2, 7 p.m.) and Alabama at Auburn (ESPN, 7 p.m.).
The only SEC game not scheduled for television is Wake Forest at Vanderbilt.
Simple Stuff: Tennessee's defensive game plan against Arkansas was the smallest defensive coordinator John Chavis has used.
But for defensive tackle Dan Williams, it wasn't that different than the usual week-to-week plan.
"For me, I'm either an A gap, B gap player or sometimes C gap player," Williams said Monday. "It would probably help the secondary out. For me, I don't think it did something, because that's what I'd do every game."
Good Sunday: Tennessee held its fourth consecutive Sunday night practice this week, and Williams is a fan of the change, which gives players Monday off.
"It kind of gives you a rest. It really helps us focus better on Tuesday and Wednesday," Williams said. "You know those are two of the toughest practices of the week. It kind of helps your body get a little more rest."
