You'll soon see a familiar face on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

New UT head coach Butch Jones will be featured on the regional cover of the SEC Preview edition.  The magazine sometimes features different people on their cover in different parts of the country.

The issue should be out August 1.

Fans also have a cool chance to see Jones' and the rest of the team in person, at an open practice scheduled for August 17.

Fans will get a sneak peek at Tennessee's football team during an open practice at Neyland Stadium on Aug. 17.   The team will practice from 7:00 - 8:15 p.m., and fans can enter at Gates 14, 20, and 21 beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Coach Jones said he was working on making this happen earlier this month because he wanted to test the team in front of fans.

"On behalf of Team 117, I would like to invite the best and most passionate fans in the country to help us prepare for the upcoming season," said head coach Butch Jones. "We hope to see everyone at our open practice on Saturday, August 17th at Neyland Stadium as we continue to work toward the opening of the 2013 season."

Admission to the event and parking will both be free of charge, and concession stands will be open.   Parking will be available in the following lots: G-3, G-4, G-5, G-10, and Staff Lot 9.

After practice, the team will return to the Anderson Training Center to resume its normal training camp meeting schedule.

The Vols will open the season at home against Austin Peay on Aug. 31.
