KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — After a lackluster season-opener against Appalachian State, the Volunteers have more questions going into Saturday’s Battle at Bristol with Virginia Tech than most would have expected.
Here are three that will determine the outcome of the game.
1. Is QB Josh Dobbs healthy enough to be effective?
Dobbs took a nasty shot to the ribs as he dove for the end zone in OT against Appalachian State. After the game, the rumor mill really cranked up about the nature of the injury, ranging from supposed cracked or broken ribs to maybe just bruised.
