It may only be 112 miles from Blacksburg to Bristol but this is like stepping into another world. It will be the team that can come back to earth first that will have the upper hand on saturday night.

"We are just coming in and playing a  really tough team in Virginia Tech", said Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs.

"If we're more focused on the environment than the actual football at South then we won't come out on top so we have to be locked into the game plan and locked in the first snap."

"I'm curious to see how the field will be and how far the stands will be from the field", said wide receiver Isaiah Ford.

"I'm not really worried about anything at the end of the day it's still a football game got there and play football it's exciting but at the end of the day we have to go out and we have to execute we have to play well no matter if there's five people in the stands or 5 million."

The last meeting came into thousand and nine I was at that game that's the Chick-fil-A bowl in Atlanta Georgia. It was a 37 to 14 Virginia Tech win they ran the ball to win that night. Your last regular-season meeting 1937, 27 to nothing Tennessee win.
