Wednesday night on Vol Calls, callers were eager to get Coach Jones' opinion on the third Saturday in October.
Coach Butch Jones was joined by voice of the Vols Bob Kesling and Volquest's Brent Hubbs for the weekly call-in show.
The Alabama message on the rock never came up, but Coach Jones did talk about this weekend's matchup. He called the Tennessee-Alabama rivalry one of the biggest rivalries in college football.
Fans we talked to say they are fired up for this weekend's grudge match.
"I'm thinking positive, hope we show up and play tough, hope the defense stays in there; we've played good the past couple of weeks so I hope we show up ready to play and make it a good game," said Corbin Norton from Morristown.
That game is the CBS game of the week. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 3:30.
