Saturday’s Tennessee-Missouri game marks a chance for the Volunteers to move closer to bowl eligibility.
Tennessee (4-5, 0-5 SEC) is coming off a 24-10 win over Southern Mississippi, a victory that halted a four-game losing streak. Vols quarterback Jarrett Guarantano is dealing with an ankle injury and his availability will be a game-time decision. If Guarantano is unable to play, Tennessee will turn to true freshman Will McBride, who made his first collegiate appearance last week.
The Vols will likely lean on running backs John Kelly and Ty Chandler to help them control the clock and keep the prolific Missouri offense off the field. Kelly has rushed for 694 yards and 8 touchdowns this season, and Chandler has added 253 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Missouri (4-5, 1-4) has won three consecutive games, scoring 165 points in the process. Tigers quarterback Drew Lock has passed for 2,795 yards this season and is completing 60.7 percent of his passes. He has thrown 31 touchdown passes against only 9 interceptions. Ish Witter leads Mizzou in rushing this season with 504 yards.
Kickoff is 7 p.m. ET at Faurot Field in Columbia, Mo.
