KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The month of October and the top-notch Southeastern Conference opponents it brings should finally give Tennessee a better picture of what its identity is.
Volunteers coach Derek Dooley wants it to be very clear, though: He's looking from improvement from his players one game at a time and currently isn't concerned with any game beyond Saturday's meeting with Georgia.
The Vols (3-1, 0-1) don't have a real good feel for what they can do against the SEC. They've handily beaten the three nonconference opponents they've faced so far but lost by 10 points at Florida in their lone conference game.
After facing Georgia (3-2, 2-1), the Vols host No. 1 LSU before traveling to No. 2 Alabama and finishing up the month at home against South Carolina.
