Through 3 Quarters

The Tennessee Volunteers were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Bowling Green Falcons as Tennessee lead 28-6.

The Volunteers have enjoyed the tag-team combination of QB Joe Milton III and RB Tiyon Evans. The former has accumulated 100 passing yards in addition to rushing for two TDs and 54 yards, while the latter has rushed for one TD and 92 yards on 13 carries.

What to Know

The Bowling Green Falcons and the Tennessee Volunteers will face off at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 2 at Neyland Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Coming off of an uninspired 0-5 last-season record, Bowling Green has set their aspirations higher this season. Likewise, last year was nothing to brag about for Tennessee (3-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start.

The Falcons are expected to lose, and badly: the experts have them at a 37-point disadvantage. A victory doesn't seem in the cards, but we'll see if they can at least keep Tennessee from covering the spread.
