Tennessee vs Purdue: TransPerfect Music City Bowl, What’s Going To Happen

Tennessee already got a win by not losing head coach Josh Heupel to the Oklahoma job, but it’s going to have a long day of dealing with Purdue’s style.

Tempo is going to matter here.

Tennessee was a whole lot of fun, but it had one good win against Kentucky, and that’s about it. The second-best win either against Missouri or South Carolina.

Purdue is a passing team, and it’s about to go against a team that can’t really stop the offenses that can throw. That’s going to make for a fun game, especially because it’ll open up Tennessee’s attack that much more.

The last time we saw a Jeff Brohm team in a bowl game his Boilermakers were rocked by Auburn 63-14 in the 2018 Music City Bowl. This won’t be that, but the Vols will have just a wee bit more pop in the fourth quarter – and more good parts in place – to get out with a wild win.
