Tennessee leads the all-time series with LSU, 20-9-3. LSU has won the past four games, though. Tennessee’s last win came in 2005 in Baton Rouge.
It’s been quite the week at Tennessee, huh? After relieving Butch Jones of his duties and naming Brady Hoke interim head coach and staking out the airport looking for Jon Gruden, it’s time to get back to focusing on football.
If nothing else, they’re honoring the 1997 team. So that should be cool.

The problem though is that Tennessee has looked pretty bad in all six SEC games. That’s unlikely to change against a very good LSU team.
Any result other than a Tigers drubbing would be pretty surprising, all in all. The Vols are ready for this season to be over and coaching carousel to ramp up.
