Prediction: Close game between the Tennessee Vols and Arkansas State Red Wolves this week!!!!

____________

I saw the Tennessee v. Utah State game last night on TV and I must say that the Vols look better than I thought they would this year. This is an Utah State team that won 9 games last year and they were manhandled by the Vols. 

However, I must point out that Arkansas State is a different beast entirely. Do you realize that Ole Miss, Auburn, and Boise State have come to Jonesboro the last 3 years to get their head coaches. There is a reason that is true, and that is because Arkansas State has had some really good football teams. 

I salute the Vols for a fine performance last week but I predict a much closer game this week against the Red Wolves.
