Tennessee Volunteers vs. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Complete Game Preview
Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Before the Tennessee Volunteers head West to begin a brutal two-game road trip against top-12 opponents Oregon and Florida, they'll welcome an old foe into Neyland Stadium.

Bobby Petrino is coming to Knoxville, and he's bringing his new team, Western Kentucky, with him.

The former Head Hog in Arkansas celebrated his first trip back to SEC play since the infamous motorcycle accident brought his Arkansas head coaching stint to a screeching halt with a 35-26 win over Kentucky last week. Now, he'll bring a tricky talented Hilltoppers team to Knoxville with nothing to lose.

The only other meeting between the Vols and Hilltoppers came in Lane Kiffin's first game as UT's head coach in 2009, as the Vols torched WKU, 63-7. The last time UT saw Petrino was a bit more forgettable, as Jarius Wright and Joe Adams led eighth-ranked Arkansas to a 49-7 win over Derek Dooley's Vols in 2011.

You may remember the Xbox-esque punt return where Adams made Tennessee look like Pop Warner players. I still wake up in cold sweats after having nightmares about it.
