KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Volunteers moved to No. 9 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 9 in the USA TODAY AFCA Coaches poll following a dominant 49-13 win over Virginia last Saturday afternoon.

Tennessee (1-0, 0-0 SEC) currently ranks in the top 10 in both polls for the first time during the 2023 season. During the 2022 season, the Vols spent seven consecutive weeks in the top 10 in both polls.

Tennessee looks to keep its strong start to the season rolling as it returns to Neyland Stadium for the home opener against Austin Peay at 5:00 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN+/ SECN+. Tickets for the game are still available in very limited quantities at AllVols.com.
