Usually, when you sit down to preview a game, you have some idea of what you're going to say. There's a compelling storyline, a special matchup or a telling stat. But all of that requires you to know something -- and we know next to nothing about either of these teams.
Sure, we know that Tyler Bray and Zach Collaros are talented and potentially great quarterbacks. And we know that each of these teams are entering the second year of a new coaching regime after a short stop by the last guy, who eventually moved on to one of the traditional media darlings.
But the results of the field give us nothing. What does it mean that Cincy ran for 387 yards against Austin Peay, or that the Vols passed for 311 against Montana? This is a guess, and I'm not even sure it's a guess with anything of value behind it.
Tennessee 34, Cincinnati 21
