The odds are, quite literally, not in his team’s favor when it travels to Neyland Stadium to face the University of Tennessee on Saturday at noon in Knoxville, Tennessee. UMass (0-4) is roughly a four-touchdown underdog entering the first of two games on its 2017 schedule against an SEC opponent.
“They have guys I never get a chance to recruit,” Whipple said when asked about the Volunteers. “They’re fast. They’re an SEC team … We can’t (shoot) ourselves in the foot in the first period like we did (last year) against South Carolina. We have to take care of the ball, get used to the crowd and settle in.”
Saturday’s already-high degree of difficulty only increases if UMass tight end Adam Breneman, the team’s leadingreceiver, cannot play because of a lingering ankle injury. Breneman attended practice but did not participate Wednesday. Whipple said the senior is feeling better, but the team had not yet determined if he will play.
Getting off to a good start is key to keeping injuries to a minimum and seeing what the young players can do. If Tennessee can make this happen, fans might see a solid dose of backup quarterback Jarrett Guarantano on Saturday. In Butch Jones’ press conference on Wednesday, he said that Guarantano has, “earned the right to play some. We need to get him involved in the offense this week.”
