KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — If Tennessee doesn’t draw 60,000 fans to the Orange & White game on Saturday, no one will be able to blame the weather.

The forecast calls for sunny skies and warm temperatures on Saturday. The Weather Channel says it should be 76 degrees when the Vols kick off at 3 p.m. The high could reach 79 degrees in the afternoon.

(After this winter, we shouldn’t be picky, but that’s almost too hot.)

Coach Butch Jones canceled the practice scheduled for Friday, although it’s likely the Vols will still do a walk-through to prepare for Saturday’s scrimmage.
