It will be the second meeting between the Volunteers and the Blue Raiders. The only other showdown between the two came when MTSU came to Neyland Stadium to face the No. 4 Tennessee Volunteers, which resulted in the 26-3 win for the Vols.
This week's match-up is quite different. The Vols are coming in to this game fresh off of three straight conference losses having only scored 16 points in those games.
The Blue Raiders are also struggling, but they have shown the ability to play with talented football teams. The Raiders took the Purdue Boilermakers to the wire losing the lead with just 49 seconds remaining and had the game-tying field goal blocked in a 27-24 loss.
Dooley and the Vols have won five straight games over non-conference opponents including wins over Montana, Cincinnati and Buffalo in 2011.
Watch as Dooley addresses the media Monday afternoon at his weekly press conference.
