According to a the Knoxville News Sentinel, a source close to the situation has confirmed that Tennessee will play Virginia Tech in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta on New Year's Eve Night.
I predicted the Bowl to take Tennessee nearly two weeks ago, although Virginia Tech was not who I expected Tennessee to play.
Tennessee last met Virginia Tech in the 1995 Gator Bowl at the end of Peyton Manning's freshman year. The Vols won 45-23.
The game will be played at the Georgia Dome at 8:30pm on New Year's Eve.
The Chick-Fil-A bowl used to be known as the Peach Bowl.
The Vols last played in that bowl in 2002 and 2003. Both losses to Maryland and Clemson respectively.
