As expectations continue to skyrocket on Rocky Top, the first look fans will have to catch a glimpse of Tennessee's Team 120 will be during the annual Orange and White Game. To fans eager to catch a glimpse of what is to come on the field this season, the Volunteers recently announced the official time and date of 2016's spring game. 

The Orange and White Game is scheduled to be held April 16 and will begin at 2p.m. ET, of course inside Neyland Stadium. The spring game will conclude the team's spring session, which kicks off March 7. 

Under head coach Butch Jones, the Vols have averaged 64,243 fans in attendance for each spring game and will be looking to beat the school's all time spring game attendance record of 73,801 set in 1986. Will this be the year a new record is set? Judging by the hype surrounding the program, the likelihood of a record crowd appears high.
