Tennessee plans to start three freshmen and one junior-college transfer in Sunday's season opener against Utah State. Ten more freshmen, two redshirt freshmen and three junior-college transfers are in second-team roles. Tennessee's entire offensive and defensive two-deep includes just six seniors, matching Temple for the fewest of any Football Bowl Subdivision program.That includes two true freshmen offensive linemen and the DE. Their kicker is also a true Freshman.
This makes Georgia's Dbacks seem like graybeards. The Vols open with Utah State at home on Sunday.
