Now that the Battle at Bristol is done, Tennessee has shifted its focus to the Ohio Bobcats. The two teams play each other in Neyland Stadium at noon on Saturday.
Head coach Butch Jones knows all about Ohio. He coached in the same conference, the Mid-American Conference, from 2007 to 2009 with Central Michigan University. Jones was 2-0 during his time at CMU against Ohio, but he has the utmost respect for head coach Frank Solich and his staff.
"You look at their coordinators, they've been together for 12 years," Jones said. "You talk about consistency in a football program and they've built a great football program. They've been bowl eligible nine out of their last 10 years."
Ohio (1-1) lost its first game against Texas State, but is coming off of a 37-21 road win against Kansas, in which the Bobcats controlled the time of possession for 44 minutes and 22 seconds.
The Bobcats average 45.5 points per game through two games this season.
