KNOXVILLE, TN (WAFF) - Tennessee prepares for Alabama Saturday, Butch Jones still understands his Vols program is a work in progress.
Still this season's team quite frankly is better than in years past.
The Vols have heard their fair share of criticism after those tough Oklahoma and Florida losses. Tennessee now 3-3 after a comeback win over Georgia.
Win or lose Saturday, this Vols program is still growing on the job.
"We're still building this football program. And I know a lot of people don't want to hear it, but it's reality, and it's the mindset, and the competitiveness nature in our football program," said Vols Head Coach Butch Jones Wednesday. " It's the confidence, it's the love for football, the love of competition and it's the love for each other, and it's the expectations of our football program, and our players have done a very, very good job at that."
Kickoff is set for 2:30 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
