The Tennessee Volunteers will travel to Columbia, South Carolina in Week 12 to face the South Carolina Gamecocks in another SEC showdown. Kickoff from Williams-Brice Stadium will be in the primetime window.

The Volunteers were in a bit of a fight against Missouri before getting into a groove offensively. The Tigers simply couldn’t keep up with Tennessee after a certain point. Being ranked fifth in the College Football Playoff poll means the Volunteers need to keep winning in style and hope someone else trips up.

South Carolina suffered a major letdown in a blowout loss to Florida. The Gamecocks have not managed to capitalize on their 5-2 start, losing two of the next three games. They are bowl eligible, which does enough to keep the fan base happy for the time being. Shane Beamer needs a strong showing here.
