Josh Heupel previews Johnny Majors Classic against Pittsburgh

·1 min read

Tennessee (1-0) will play at Pittsburgh (1-0) in Week 2.

The Vols defeated Ball State, 59-10, in Week 1.

Ahead of the second Johnny Majors Classic, Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel previewed playing Pittsburgh.

“This is a big game for us, obviously,” Heupel said. “The first road test for us against a really good football team. Awesome opportunity to recognize coach Majors and what he did for both programs, but in particular here at Tennessee. His years here as a player, as a coach, the impact that he has had and legacy that he has left on our program, is something that we still see and feel today, so a great opportunity there.

“Really good football team in all three phases. I faced them four times, this is the fourth time in five years. They are tough and physical on both sides of the line of scrimmage, and they do a really nice job. It will be a big test for us. After watching the ball game from the other night, there are some things that are really positive. I like what we did in all three phases, but there are some things that we will have to grow through really quickly before we play Saturday afternoon.”

Kickoff between the Vols and Panthers is slated for 3:30 p.m. EDT at Acrisure Stadium. ABC will televise the Week 2 matchup.
