Tennessee will start a freshman against the tenth ranked team in the nation on Saturday.
The Vols are making their first trip ever to Columbia, Missouri, to face the Tigers.
Freshman Josh Dobbs will make his first start, after finishing the Alabama game when Justin Worley went out with an injury to his hand.
The Tigers know something about losing a quarterback. They will again have redshirt freshman Maty Mauk at quarterback while James Franklin recovers from a shoulder injury.
The surprising Tigers ruined a perfect season last week against South Carolina, a team Tennessee managed to beat in Knoxville. But the Vols haven't gotten an SEC win on the road this season.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on ESPN.
