Once upon a time, a 7-5 season was seen as an unmitigated disaster at Tennessee. That is no longer the case after years of wallowing in mediocrity. Second-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt has put the Volunteers in the postseason after a two-year break. By contrast, it’s as good as it gets for Indiana. The Hoosiers are riding in the rarified air of an 8-4 season for College Football betting Games. Head coach Tom Allen was named Big Ten Coach of the Year. And he also inked a new extension to ensure he remains in Bloomington.
