Tennessee Will Be Without Running Back Against Georgia

Videos by OutKick

The Tennessee football team was already battling an uphill battle today, facing the #1 Georgia Bulldogs. But now, the battle will be even harder. The team will be without running back Tiyon Evans against the Dawgs today, as he continues to battle back from a lower body injury.

The Dawgs are 19.5 point favorites, according to FanDuel.

The Dawgs defense ranks #2 in the country for total defense and have only given up six offensive touchdowns on the season. This will be a tough task for the Vols today, especially if Tennessee’s other running back Jabari Small is not at 100%. This team is already hurting at multiple spots, so today’s outing just got much harder.

Tennessee will rely on Jaylen Wright, Len’Neth Whitehead and Small to carry the load today.

Safe to say, Hendon Hooker and the Vols wide receivers will be needed much more than some thought before warmups.
