By Kevin Kelley -

The Tennessee Volunteers have added the South Alabama Jaguars to their 2021 football schedule, according to UT’s official website.

Tennessee will host South Alabama at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville on a date to be determined in 2021. In their first and only meeting in 2013, the Volunteers nipped the Jaguars 31-24 at home.

The Volunteers now have two non-conference games scheduled for the 2021 season. Tennessee is also scheduled to host Pittsburgh on Sept. 11. That game is the first in a home-and-home series that concludes at Heinz Field in 2022.

In SEC play, Tennessee is slated to host Georgia, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Ole Miss and travel to Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, and Alabama.

South Alabama, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, now has three non-conference games scheduled in 2021. The Jaguars are also slated to host Southern Miss on Sept. 4 and travel to Bowling Green on Sept. 11.
