Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt began his second season with a 38-30 home loss to Georgia State. As a result of that 2019 College Football betting opener, Pruitt was assumed to be finished. In fact, Tennessee began last season with five losses in their first seven games. Their season was pronounced dead. However, Tennessee won their final six games of the 2019 season. That’s been followed with two wins to start the 2020 campaign. Now comes the biggest test of the turnaround. Tennessee will play at Georgia on Saturday. First place in the SEC East is at stake.
