GVX TV | Double Coverage Tennessee vs South Alabama
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The future has become the present for the South Alabama football program.
Games such as the one the Jaguars will play today are the type of games the coaching staff pointed to when recruiting many of the players who will be in uniform for South Alabama. Today's game represents the opportunities that were promised.
The Jaguars, 2-1 on the season, face SEC member Tennessee, 2-2, at Neyland Stadium in an 11:21 a.m. CDT game. It will be played to a large television audience on the SEC Network, in one of the country's biggest college football stadiums, before the biggest crowd in which the Jags have ever played.
Opportunity is knocking, but it is expected to be a test. While the Volunteers are on a two-game losing streak, the losses have come on the road and against teams ranked in the Top 25 -- Oregon and Florida. On the other hand, South Alabama is on a two-game win streak, having topped Tulane on the road and Western Kentucky at home in games that went down the the final play.
