Tennessee vs. Texas A&M preview:

The Volunteers are undefeated and are coming off of their most dramatic win of the season.

Tennessee (5-0) used some late game heroics to overcome the Georgia Bulldogs in a showdown of SEC East rivals. Quarterback Josh Dobbs unleashed a missile in the final with the final seconds ticking off the clock. The result of the heave was a 43-yard game-winning touchdown catch by Jauan Jennings.

Texas A&M (5-0) is off to a great start this year, winning five in a row to open the season. The Aggies took down then No. 17 Arkansas 45-24 in Week 4, and a coming off of a 24-13 win over fellow SEC member South Carolina.

Butch Davis is in his fourth season as the Volunteers head coach. He took over in 2013 and has improved the team's record in each season. Davis has been a head coach at Central Michigan (2007-2009) and Cincinnati (2010-2012) and owns a 76-44 overall record as a head coach.

Kevin Sumlin is in his fifth season as the head coach of the Aggies. Sumlin was also the head coach of the Houston Cougars from 2008-2011. He brings a 76-33 record into this weekend's contest.

Tennessee and Texas A&M have met twice in history, with the Volunteers taking both contests.

Tennessee vs. Texas A&M prediction:

Tennessee has been the team of destiny this season, overcoming multiple 14-point deficits to remain undefeated. But they have not faced a team nearly as talented as the Aggies. Texas A&M boasts a top-20 defense statistically, led by outstanding junior defensive end Myles Garrett.

This will be a tight battle, but the Aggies just have too much depth on both sides of the ball for the Volunteers to stack up.
