Tennessee will play Georgia State in a home football game on Sept. 7, 2019, a UT spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
The Vols last played Georgia State on Sept., 8, 2012, winning 51-13. That was GSU’s third season of football after a long hiatus from the sport. The Panthers were then a Football Championship Subdivision school, but have now joined the Football Bowl Subdivision as part of the Sun Belt Conference. They went 0-12 last season in their first year in the FBS.
Financial information on the contract was not made available by UT.
