I really think this is the best bet of the weekend. Utah St. is highly overvalued because of Chuckie Keeton. Keeton is great but the team around him isnt so good. They return less starters than Tennessee does. I saw someone mentioned UT replacing both lines. That is true but UT should be better on the Dline. UT's Dline starters last year were garbage. Curt Maggit would have been a starter last year but he decided to redshirt and get healthy. He will start at DE. The offensive line may struggle a little but it shouldnt matter against Utah St as they dont have the athletes in the trenches to take advanatge. My last thought. Neyland stadium will be absolutely rocking. The fans are ready to see the new recruits and they will be fired up to start the season on the right foot.
No real opinion on the game, but having capped Utah teams for the last 20 years, I never take them for granted. Utah is a nation unto itself and it's rare to find any of their teams that lack a unified vision and effort. If Keeton is truly healthy, he alone can turn the tables here. Should be a good game. Unfortunately, it's the first game of the year and a long way from Logan, so we have lots to learn. Turnovers will tell the tale.
Good luck with your picks

Much thanks guys. While this line has moved to -6 in some shops, really not concerned with that move. Much more curious to see how this line moves on Sunday prior to the game.

I'm curious - the line opened Tenn -6 yet with 69% of the bets being made on Tenn, the line has slipped to 5.5. And there's a fair number of bets made. Given that every post here at pregame that features this game is on Tenn, it makes me think there's some sharp money pushing this line at 5.5. We'll have to see where it goes closer to post.
