KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) LSU knows what Tennessee is going through this week.
Tennessee (4-6, 0-6 SEC) hosts LSU on Saturday in the Volunteers' first game under interim head coach Brady Hoke after the firing of Butch Jones . LSU (7-3, 4-2) played the majority of the 2016 season with an interim coach as well after Les Miles was dismissed .
