No. 3 Tennessee hosting UT Martin of FCS for homecoming


By The Associated Press

This is homecoming and the UT Martin Skyhawks play in the Football Championship Subdivision. UT Martin is having a good season and unbeaten in three Ohio Valley Conference games. This opportunity to play on a big stage could be significant motivation for the Skyhawks if they catch the Volunteers thinking back a week or looking ahead to looming Southeastern Confernce showdowns with No. 19 Kentucky or top-ranked Georgia.
