Tennessee Volunteers fans can't have been too thrilled with the 3-7 record they put together in 2020 — especially considering they were ranked and opened the year with a 2-0 start.

They played a nightmare schedule in the SEC East, however, and things are looking brighter in 2021.

The Vols will open the season in what projects to be an absolute mismatch against Bowling Green. Week 1 college football odds on FanDuel Sportsbook have Tennessee favored by a comically large 32.5 points. That's tied for the third most lopsided spread on the board.

There's still uncertainty at the QB spot in Tennessee, but this Week 1 mismatch will be the perfect warm-up game and confidence builder for whoever it is under center.

Bowling Green allowed an absurd 45.0 points per game to their opponents in 2020 — the second-highest average in the nation. That wasn't just a one-year anomaly either, as they conceded 41.8 per game in 2019.

Tennessee fans should be in for a treat in Week 1.
