South Carolina-Tennessee will kickoff at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 14 on ESPN2 or ESPN. ESPN will make the decision on which channel after this weekend.
South Carolina (3-2, 1-2 SEC) is set to play host to Arkansas on Saturday, before hitting the road for Knoxville, Tenn. Coming off an embarrassing 41-0 home loss to Georgia, Tennessee has an off week before welcoming the SEC East rival Gamecocks to Neyland Stadium on Oct. 14, so there’s plenty of time for Volunteer fans to stew over their football team’s 3-2 record (0-2 SEC).
Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who entered 2017 with a 30-21 record in four seasons on Rocky Top, is among the most likely SEC coaches to be fired, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers.
Can the Gamecocks help turn up the heat on Jones?
