Tennessee Football: Volunteers' opener vs. Utah State moved to Sunday Aug. 31

There is a lot of excitement surrounding the Tennessee Volunteers football program this year, however the fans will have to wait one extra day to get the campaign kicked off in 2014 as the school has announced the opener against the Utah State Aggies has been moved from Saturday Aug. 30 to Sunday Aug. 31.

The University of Tennessee announced that its season-opening football game against Utah State will move to Sunday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m. The game was originally slated for Saturday, Aug. 30, and the move to Sunday means that the annual Boomsday event held in the city of Knoxville will move to Saturday evening, giving Vols fans the opportunity for a unique and memorable Labor Day weekend.

The game will be televised on the new SEC Network, and should be one of the more anticipated games of the opening college football weekend.

Not only is Tennessee looking to keep building under Butch Jones, but this game will also mark the return of Utah State’s dynamic quarterback, Chuckie Keeton, after he missed the end of last season with a severe knee injury.
