Akron vs Tennessee Preview

The No. 15 Tennessee Volunteers (2-0) hope to avoid a defeat when they face the Akron Zips (1-1) on Saturday.

The 1972 Dolphins and the 1985 Bears were busy this week, so from a scheduling standpoint, we couldnt figure it out so I guess we were going with Tennessee, according to Akron head coach Joe Moorhead via 247 Sports. Theyre going to be riding high.

Tennessee beat Pittsburgh 34-27 on the road in overtime last week, and the Vols are hoping to build on the big win before diving into SEC action. Akron barely beat a Division II team in St. Francis, Pennsylvania, to open the season, before being thrashed 52-0 by No. 14 Michigan State.

Look at the college football scores across the country last week and you can see that the goal must first and foremost be to win, according to Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel via 247 Sports. I want our kids to perform better and more efficiently throughout the course of the football game.

Hendon Hooker, a Vols quarterback, completed a big game against Pitt, allowing 325 yards and two touchdowns. Cedric Tillman, who has played for the Vols for 230 yards and a touchdown, has been the team's go-to receiver with 15 receptions.

Jaylen Wright has been a force on 22 carries, while Jabari Small has also been solid with 80 yards and three touchdowns.

Heupel said of the running game via 247 Sports that Week 1 was really solid. I thought last week, at times, was efficient. I thought Pitt had a good front, structurally, for what they did. That includes tight ends. It includes skill guys on the outside, too, who have an opportunity to make bigger plays than they were.

Due to an injury to starter D.J. Irons at MSU, Akron might choose to replace him with backup quarterback Jeff Undercuff. The Zips have a reliable running back in Cam Wiley, who has 114 yards and two touchdowns this season.

We were solid up front, but Michigan State's personnel was better than us, and they make it difficult to get yards on the ground against Akron, but any opponent they play, according to Moorhead via 247 Sports. We have to block better and ensure that our kids are put in the correct situations to be successful.
