A successful season for Tennessee and Indiana finds the programs in the Gator Bowl.
Both teams covered plenty in the latter half of the season as they flew under the betting market’s radar, with Tennessee going 6-1 and Indiana 6-3 against the number to close 2019.
The motivation will be there for both squads as neither has participated in a bowl since 2016.
Indiana offensive coordinator Kalen DeBoer, one of the hottest young coordinators in the country, will move on to become Fresno State’s head coach after this game.
DeBoer led an Indiana offense that ranked No. 14 in offensive SP+, among the best marks in the country among non-elite recruiting programs.
There are no significant departures to the NFL, but a suspension on the Tennessee side may affect the total early in the game. Wide receiver Jauan Jennings is top 40 in the nation in yards per game and touchdowns, but will sit the first half after a suspension from a sideline altercation against Vanderbilt.
A Volunteers rank of No. 6 in pass explosiveness may not show itself until the second half of this game.
