There were some people who were surprised by the Tennessee Volunteers last season and their 9-4 record which concluded with six straight wins. Butch Jones and company are riding a ton of momentum into the 2016 season and will have four straight home games to start it off including a big one against Florida to end the stretch. Josh Dobbs returns at quarterback while Jalen Hurd is back at running back. For a team that returns 17 starters from a year ago, expectations are going to be skyhigh now to win the SEC East and make it to the conference title game. Dobbs proved what he can do last season and Hurd is a very talented back to go with it. Watch out for Tennessee in 2016.
