Tennessee Stat Book
True freshman cornerback Daniel Gray will get his first career today when Tennessee faces Troy.
The Vols (3-5) and Trojans (4-4) kick off at 12:08 p.m. at Neyland Stadium (TV: FSN).
Tennessee is trying to avoid its first five-game losing streak since 1988.
Gray will be the second true freshman to earn a start in the Vols' struggling secondary, joining safety LaDarrell McNeil.
Running back Devrin Young will miss the game with a concussion. Cordarrelle Patterson and Alton "Pig" Howard will handle kickoff return duties, while either Patterson or Justin Hunter will take punt returns in place of Young.
