PHOTO: Tennessee fans travel in droves to welcome Vols to Nashville

Tennessee’s first game of the season is being held away from the friendly confines of Neyland Stadium but that hasn’t stopped their fans from showing up in Nashville and welcoming the team with their traditional Vol Walk into the stadium. 

With kickoff set for 4 p.m. ET, thousands of Volunteer fans lined the entry way into Nissan Stadium in anticipation for the neutral site game against Bowling Green:

Tennessee is a popular pick to rise up in the SEC ranks and possibly contend for the SEC East championship this season. The fans clearly support the team’s progress and this is yet another example of Vol Nation’s eagerness to celebrate the team as they embark on their third campaign under head coach Butch Jones’ watch.
