Tennessee also reached the postseason for the first time since 2019, losing 48-45 in overtime against Purdue in the TransPerfect Music City Bowl.

The Vols kick off its 2022 campaign Sept. 1 against Ball State at Neyland Stadium.

Tennessee’s 2022 regular season schedule also features home games against Akron, Florida, Alabama, UT Martin, Kentucky and Missouri.
