Vols set for mock game on Friday


KNOXVILLE (WATE)- Before the Vols kick-off against Austin Peay, Butch Jones will run his team through a mock game on Friday at Neyland Stadium.

"The mock game is anything and everything that could occur throughout the course of a football game and the course of the football season," Jones said after practice on Thursday. 

"We will practice all the little game management situations, the small details. We don't assume anything. There are a lot of mental repetitions involved. We will also do an educated guess of what Austin Peay will give us and we will rep those as well in that mock game."

Jones still has some decisions to make regarding his football team-- the starting quarterback job is getting the most attention.

The first-year Tennessee head coach said he would like to name a starter by Monday, but before that he will evaluate preseason film and then discuss his decision with all four candidates before making his decision public.
