Tennessee Stat Book
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley has promised changes on defense today when the Vols search for the first SEC win of the season against Missouri.
Tennessee (4-5, 0-5 SEC) plays Missouri (4-5, 1-5) at Neyland Stadium (TV: WVLT, 12:21 p.m.).
Judging by early arrivals, there should be plenty of empty seats, although the weather isn't to blame. The teams warmed up under sunny skies and temperatures are expected to approach 70.
The Vols allowed 721 yards of offense to Troy a week ago, and the defense will be under pressure against talented Missouri quarterback James Franklin.
Running back Rajion Neal (ankle) and offensive tackle Antonio "Tiny" Richardson (knee) are expected to play today for the Vols.
