“It’s how you finish,” Nutt said. “There’s still bowl possibilities for both teams. A lot to play for. A lot to play for. It’s about how you finish in November. We’ll have their best, there’s no doubt in my mind. And hopefully, we’re going to give them our best.”
For Tennessee, Saturday’s game against Ole Miss represents an elimination game for its bowl hopes, assuming the six-win threshold stays. At 3-6, the Vols have to win out.
