Power Ranking the Tennessee Volunteers 2013 Schedule from Easiest to Toughest

The Tennessee Football Twitter account is doing a countdown to the first game of the season everyday. Right now, the number stands at 73 days. Looking ahead to the upcoming 2013 season, I've ranked the Volunteers' 12 opponents from easiest to toughest to beat.

From lowly Austin Peay and South Alabama to national powerhouses Oregon and Alabama, the Vols' list of games this fall run the full spectrum of difficulty. Winning the easy games and fighting hard in the tough ones should be fully expected and commended for a rebuilding team.

It's those middle-of-the-road games that will decide the season, though. With two or three virtually guaranteed wins, the Vols need three or four more wins to get to their first bowl in five years with a chance to bring home a trophy for the first time in seven.

So how do Tennessee's opponents stack up?
