Official 2021 Tennessee football roster released

Orange and White Nation

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — With a mere 50 days left until the Tennessee Volunteers take on Bowling Green in Neyland Stadium to start the 2021 campaign, the official roster has been released.

The University of Tennessee announced in June that Neyland Stadium will operate at full capacity this fall, just in time for the beginning of the Josh Heupel era of Tennessee football.

“I know our fans are eager to experience the rich pageantry of Tennessee football gamedays again, and they’re going to have an exciting brand of football to rally around,” Director of Athletics Danny White said. “This will be my first football season at Tennessee, and after witnessing the power of Vol Nation during our recent baseball postseason run, I cannot wait to see the impact of our fans giving their all in a packed Neyland Stadium.”
