Five out of the last seven opponents for Tennessee were ranked in the top 10 when the Voluteers strapped up against them. It's a schedule that coach Butch Jones compares to some of the most difficult in the history of college football.

Yet, here the Vols are at 4-4 with an opportunity to win more games this season than at any point under former coaches Derek Dooley and Lane Kiffin.

Missouri rests atop the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and is an overtime loss to South Carolina away from being undefeated.

Do the Vols have a chance at pulling off their first road upset since defeating No. 10 Georgia 51-33 in Athens on Oct. 7, 2006?
