Potential Stumbling Block: at Tennessee
Last year Tennessee was one penalty away from beating LSU in Death Valley.
You could argue that LSU has slightly improved since last year, but Tennessee is a completely different football team, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
This year the Vols have the 11th-best passing attack in the nation, the Vols are averaging about 38 points and over 100 rushing yards a game, and have already had good offensive games against two quality opponents
Last year, the Vols were only averaging 27 points a game going into the LSU game (they only averaged 15 points a game against quality competition,) were starting a turnover machine at quarterback in Matt Simms, were one dimensional on offense, and look liked they were going to be a three-to-four-win football team.
This three-to-four-win team only lost by two points in Death Valley!
Now that Tennessee is playing LSU at home, has one of the best young quarterbacks in the country in Tyler Bray (he already has 14 touchdown passes,) and is looking like a borderline top 25 team instead of a borderline bowl team.
If Tennessee can stop the run and get a passing game going against LSU (remember how well WVU passed the ball against the Tigers,) they have a good chance at upsetting LSU.
