OUR PREDICTION: Tennessee's offense struggled mightily versus Appalachian State but should get on track this weekend. The over is 6-0 in the Vols' last six neutral site games and 19-7 in their last 26 games in September. On the other side, the over is 4-0-1 in the Hokies' last five games versus SEC opponents and 3-0-1 in their last four neutral site games. With Dobbs, Hurd, Evans and Alvin Kamara headlining this game, their should be enough points scored to push the game over the total.
