Football Flights: Tennessee to Checker Neyland for Ole Miss Game
Saturday night is preparing to be quite the scene at Neyland Stadium. The 4-2 Volunteers are flying high after back-to-back SEC wins, and will now welcome Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss team to town.
It’s an overnight game, and now we know Checker Neyland is set for a comeback. Danny White confirmed the news on Monday by stating “This Saturday we #CheckerNeyland”.
You can find your section color by visiting CheckerNeyland.com. This will be the fifth time that Checker Neyland has taken place. 2015 Oklahoma, 2016 Florida, 2017 Georgia, and 2018 Florida were the other times, and Tennessee only came out on top once – that crazy 2016 victory over Florida.
Saturday’s game is no shortage of stories. Lane Kiffin returns to Neyland Stadium for the first time as a head coach since joining USC in 2010. The game will also feature two of the best offensives in the country, with a Vegas total of around. 80 points.
Tennessee has not had any sold out this year. They had their biggest crowd of the season last weekend against South Carolina, welcoming over 89,000 fans. Call it COVID issues, call it boring over a decade after losing, Neyland Stadium has yet to see capacity this season. That could change on Saturday night.
Ole Miss-Tennessee kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET. SEC Network will have the coverage.
