Pruitt: ‘The University of Tennessee is supposed to be in bowl games’

KNOXVILLE – Tennessee (5-5, 2-4 SEC) needs one more win to become bowl eligible after defeating No. 12 Kentucky, 24-7.

The Vols will host Missouri (6-4, 2-4 SEC) for the final home game of the season in Week 12 before concluding the regular season Nov. 24 at Vanderbilt (4-6, 1-5 SEC).

Following the win over Kentucky, Jeremy Pruitt discussed the significance of getting to a bowl game.

“I think it’s important because the University of Tennessee is supposed to be in bowl games,” Pruitt said. “That’s the expectation here. That’s my expectation, that’s our players expectations.

“To me, it’s just winning the next game, so we’re going to go out there and do a good job this week and try to put a good plan together and give our kids an opportunity. We’ll be playing a good football team every week in the league, so that’s all we can do.”
