The Tennessee Volunteers officially know when they’ll be playing this year. At least, for the first three games. The official team Twitter account released Tennessee’s schedule for broadcasting for the first three weeks of the season. It’s exactly how you’d expect it to look:

The Chick fil A kickoff game versus Georgia Tech will kick off at 8:00 PM. ESPN will broadcast that game across the nation, giving the Vols a chance to make a strong first impression on the rest of the nation after a disappointing 2016. The Vols host the Indiana State Sycamores the following weekend, and that game will be broadcast at 4:00 PM on the SEC Network. The Volunteers take on Florida the following week in the 3:30 SEC on CBS game of the week. It’ll be a new sound for SEC football fans, as Brad Nessler takes over play-by-play for Verne Lundquist. While the Vols likely will not get five SEC games of the week this season, they are guaranteed that the biggest game (in the eyes of many) will be one of them.
