The University of Tennessee Volunteers are set to take on No. 13 Ole Miss on Saturday (Oct. 16) in front of a sold out Neyland Stadium with over 100,000 fans. This game marks the program’s first sellout since its Georgia game in September of 2017.

Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White announced that Saturday’s contest will be a #CheckerNeyland game, showcasing Tennessee’s iconic checkerboard pattern through Neyland Stadium. The fan-driven initiative will be the fifth in program history and the first since 2017. Fans are encouraged to wear orange or white, depending on their seat location.

The Saturday primetime showdown features the two fastest offenses in the Power Five. Ole Miss and Tennessee run 2.89 and 2.87 offensive plays per minute, respectively.

Head coach Josh Heupel‘s Volunteers (4-2, 2-1 SEC) are riding a two-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 107-44 during that stretch, including back-to-back 28-point first quarters for the first time in modern program history. Ole Miss (4-1, 1-1) enters the contest following a 52-51 shootout victory over then-No. 13 Arkansas last Saturday in Oxford.

The game will be aired on SEC Network and kickoff will be at 6:30 p.m. CT. Gates to Neyland Stadium open at 5:30 p.m.
