Being back on a football field gives the Tennessee Volunteers to hit the reset button after a rough few months.
The list of setbacks and disappointments is long.
The Vols received a bowl invitation despite a 3-7 record, then lost it a day later due to COVID-19 issues in December. Tennessee fired coach Jeremy Pruitt and nine others Jan. 18 for NCAA rules violations. Danny White was hired as the new athletic director, and then he hired Josh Heupel as the new coach on Jan. 27.
