OutKick’s Clay Travis spent the morning bathing himself in the “purity of the Tennessee River.”
During an appearance on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff, Clay busted out a cannonball. In the name of Tennessee, Travis opted to get wet just hours before the Vols attempt to get wild versus SEC East-rival Kentucky.
Third-ranked Tennessee hosts the 19th ranked Wildcats this evening. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. EST.
Always the showman, Travis provided the crowd on hand, and those watching at home, a score prediction before bath time.
“It’s gonna be an absolute blowout, ” Clay Travis told host Rob Stone. “52-28 Tennessee wrecks the Kentucky Wildcats!”
After quickly pumping up next week’s matchup between potentially-still undefeated Tennessee and defending National Champion Georgia, Clay took a jump.
“Just to make it all clear, I’m going to bathe myself in the purity of the Tennessee River, go after those Bama goalposts,” said a grinning Travis. “Boys and girls, let’s go Big Orange. It’s time to get rich, kids. Watch this cannonball!”
Tennessee Is 7-0 And 3-0 In Conference
Moments after Clay Travis took the plunge, Big Noon Kickoff’s co-hosts scored his cannonball. Reggie Bush wasted little time critiquing Clay’s aquatic skills. “I give him a five,” Bush told Stone. Seemingly unimpressed with Clay’s Olympic-like form, Stone shot back: “I mean, five’s a big number, but not on that scale.”
“I didn’t see a big splash. I gotta see a big splash,” insisted Bush.
Fortunately for Reggie Bush, he’s in line to see quite a big splash of Volunteer orange later this evening – at least according to Clay.
