10 players who make the Vols a potential SEC championship contender


Fall camp is underway for Tennessee football ahead of the 2022 season, one garnering much excitement and anticipation around Knoxville for a team that could potentially challenge for an SEC championship given the returning talent. Georgia’s the obvious favorite in the SEC East, but with several all-conference-caliber players back on offense and expected improvements on the other side of the ball, betting Tennessee to continue building on early success under second-year Vols head coach Josh Heupel feels like a safe bet in August.

After the first day to open camp, Heupel sounded anxious to see this team perform over the next few weeks ahead of the anticipated opener.

“Some of the things you see out on the practice field – efficiency, the ability to take coaching, the ability for players to coach each other,” Heupel said, via GoVols247. “Some of the intangible things that we spent so much time on . Those things showed up. They showed up today in a really big way.”
