OUR PICK: Even though the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams, the wise bet is to buck the trend and take the under. The under is 16-5 in the Bulldogs' last 21 games overall and 5-1 in their last six conference games. Their offense isn't firing on all cylinders yet as Chubb has been mostly held in check outside of a great Week 1 performance and Eason has struggled through some growing pains. On the other side, the under is 4-1-1 in the Vols' last six games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous contest.
