Select and look at the preview
In last week’s game against Missouri, Tennessee’s offense scored 62 points in less than 20 minutes. Although they weren’t anticipated to win many games this year, they put on a spectacular performance nonetheless.
South Carolina, which beat Troy by nine points just a week ago, will visit the Volunteers’ stadium to face them.
Tennessee’s attack, headed by quarterback Hendon Hooker, is the best in the game. Tennessee has the 16th best scoring offense in the country. Even though last week’s performance boosted those figures, there’s still reason to be optimistic about Heupel and his offense going forward.
Hooker is third in the SEC in terms of yards per attempt and fourth in terms of completion percentage among quarterbacks who have attempted at least 75 dropbacks.
South Carolina’s offensive is so bad that I’m not sure it’s even worth mentioning. Just be aware that things aren’t looking good. It’s terrible.
However, the Gamecocks do have a respectable defense. In terms of EPA per play, the Gamecock defense is 17th. This team has gained ground on the ground, but they rank 16th in college football when it comes to yards per pass, and they’ve also had their share of turnovers.
On the defensive back end, the Gamecocks’ Jaylan Foster and Cam Smith have each had strong seasons. In order to stop Tennessee’s passing attack, they’ll have to do a lot.
S.C. can pressure the quarterback, and Tennessee hasn’t shown it can keep him safe. Sacks are uncommon for South Carolina defensive lineman Kingsley Enagbare, who has 22 pressures this season.
Tennessee’s offensive line only needs to hang on for a short period of time to secure the victory. This is far easier said than done, believe me when I say that. So I wouldn’t wager on Tennessee to win, but I think Hooker and company will move the ball well enough for them to win.
