Tennessee (1-0) will host Pittsburgh (1-0) on Saturday in the Johnny Majors Classic at Neyland Stadium.
The Vols and Panthers have played two other times. Pittsburgh defeated Tennessee in 1980 and 1983. Both contests were played at Neyland Stadium.
Tennessee enters its Week 2 matchup with Pittsburgh following a 38-6 victory against Bowling Green. The Panthers defeated UMass, 51-7, in its season-opening game at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Ahead of the Week 2 contest, Vols Wire takes a look at pregame social media buzz from official team and university accounts, former players and more.
Tomorrow’s game is for those families affected by the 9/11 attacks, the family of Staff Sgt Knauss, and the legendary Johnny Majors. 🙏🙏
