Where Tennessee ranks in becoming bowl eligible at 5-7

KNOXVILLE — Jeremy Pruitt took part in the SEC coaches teleconference ahead of playing Kentucky in Week 11.

One of the topics discussed was if Tennessee would accept a bowl invitation if the Vols had a 5-7 record.

Pruitt said Tennessee would accept a bowl bid at 5-7, citing “we need all the practice we can get.”

A bowl game would allow for Tennessee to have 15 additional practices leading up to the postseason contest.

With a 5-7 record, Tennessee would need to receive a bowl invitation based on their Academic Progress Rate (APR).

Tennessee currently has an APR score of 972 (tied-52nd nationally).
