Tennessee Volunteers

This would have to be a home-and-home series, no doubt about it. Clemson and Tennessee fans alike would absolutely eat up the chance to travel to the others’ respected stadium. I’ve always wanted to see Neyland Stadium, as a fan, and this would be a trip worth making for Tiger fans who have never been up to Rocky Top.

In addition to the sites and sounds of a home-and-home, this could be a battle of national powerhouses. Obviously, Clemson should still be an elite power, but Tennessee is also starting to bring in some top-tier recruits. By the time this series would be scheduled, these two teams could easily be in the top-15 or top-10 in the country, if not higher.

ACC vs. SEC bragging rights would be on the line, as well as the “Battle of Wide Receiver U.” Clemson football would have a chance to prove just how good they are and Tennessee would be able to prove they are finally “back.” Obviously, they may not want to do this, but I think fans and analysts alike would love the opportunity to see these two programs face-off in a home-and-home series.
