The Friday Tailgate is filmed live in front of a studio audience composed mostly of out of work former Lane Kiffin assistants.

Maestro, the tunes:


Let's take a quick look at what's going on as we head toward the last 24 hours before game time in Knoxville.

There's a pretty good chance that Tray Matthews isn't playing tomorrow, given that this morning he was listening to Drake while driving to Newnan.

Coaches Lilly and Richt are excited about Trent Frix's ability to contribute at long snapper, as evidenced by his key role last week against LSU. Coach Richt is right by the way, having a snapper who can actually get down and cover is a big advantage on special teams.

And Rocky Top Talk has a good idea of what the Vols need to do to win this one, though they stop short of saying it'll actually happen.

Now for everyone's favorite Friday feature, the Over/Under. So Dawg Sports readers, over or under?

Keith Marshall will rush for 149.9 yards.

J.J. Green will rush for 49.9 yards.

Brendan Douglas will rush for 49.9 yards.

Justin Worley will volunteer 2.9 turnovers.

Justin Scott-Wesley will average 19.9 yards per catch.

Verne will refer to Tennessee's QB as "Wesley" or Georgia's receiver as "Worley" 0.9 times.

Marshall Morgan will account for 10.9 points.

Lane Kiffin and Tennessee fans' feelings for him will be mentioned 1.9 times on the television broadcast.

Hutson Mason will throw 4.9 passes.

Tennessee will be leading by 0.1 points at halftime.

Feel free to use this as your hang out location for tonight's thrilling BYU/Utah State and Nevada/San Diego State football action, and whatever it is the Braves plan to do tonight in game 2 of their playoff series with the Dodgers.

Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!!
