Vols’ 2014 schedule features tough early stretch

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee’s 2014 schedule includes a three-game stretch featuring back-to-back trips to Oklahoma and Georgia plus a visit from Florida.

After traveling to Oklahoma on Sept. 13, the Volunteers have a week off before visiting Georgia on Sept. 27. Florida comes to Neyland Stadium on Oct. 4.

Tennessee released its 2014 schedule Wednesday.

The home schedule includes Utah State on Aug. 30, Arkansas State on Sept. 6, Florida on Oct. 4, Chattanooga on Oct. 11, Alabama on Oct. 25, Kentucky on Nov. 15 and Missouri on Nov. 22. Road games include Oklahoma on Sept. 13, Georgia on Sept. 27, Mississippi on Oct. 18, South Carolina on Nov. 1 and Vanderbilt on Nov. 29.

Closing with Vanderbilt represents a change. Tennessee has ended the regular season against Kentucky every year since 2002.
