So … as expected … he looks like a no-go today.
Evans is a junior with 81 carries for 521 yards and six touchdowns this season, as well as 74 yards receiving and another score. When paired with now-starting quarterback Hendon Hooker, the Vols have significantly improved every week this season.
This is a big loss for UT ahead of one of the most challenging games of the season against the No. 1 team in the country in UGA, who brings one of the best defenses college football has ever seen to Knoxville. Since the start of October the Vols have looked like a much better team than earlier in the season under first-year head coach Josh Heupel, but still need one more win to be bowl eligible.
Right now Tennessee is a 19-point underdog at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 55.5.
