Robert Neyland Jr. impressed with Josh Heupel at Tennessee


Tennessee (4-2, 2-1 SEC) will host No. 14 Ole Miss (4-1, 1-1 SEC) Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Week 7.

Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. EDT and SEC Network will televise the matchup.

Tennessee enters Week 7 with victories against Bowling Green, Tennessee Tech, at Missouri and South Carolina, while suffering defeats against Pittsburgh and at Florida.

Robert Neyland Jr., a former Tennessee football player and son of legendary head coach General Robert Neyland, discussed the Vols under Josh Heupel.

Neyland Jr. said he is “definitely impressed” with Heupel as Tennessee’s head coach.

“They rushed for 450 yards (at Missouri),” Neyland Jr. told Vols Wire. “Their defense has done pretty good, too. I am just pleased as I can be. I don’t know the last time Tennessee scored 62 points, it has been a good long while.

“I am very impressed with Coach Heupel and his staff. I think Hendon Hooker has done well. He can run, as well as throw.”

Neyland Jr. played for his father on UT’s 1951 national championship team.
