KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee football program announced Thursday a nonconference contest against Troy on Nov. 21, 2020.

The game completes the Volunteers' schedule for that season, with home games against Charlotte (Sept. 5) and Furman (Sept. 19) and an away game at Oklahoma on Sept. 12 in Norman.

The Southeastern Conference has announced the opponents for 2020 but not the dates. Tennessee will host Alabama, Florida, Kentucky and Missouri and travel to Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

It will be the second meeting between the Vols and the Trojans. In 2012, they gained the most combined yards (1,439) in a game involving an SEC program. Tennessee had 718 of those, with quarterback Tyler Bray throwing for a school-record 530 yards to go along with five touchdowns in a 55-48 victory in Knoxville.

Troy went 10-3 in 2018, winning the Sun Belt's East Division. The Trojans lost 21-10 to Appalachian State in the conference championship game before defeating Buffalo 42-32 in the Dollar General Bowl, the program's fourth consecutive bowl victory.

Coach Neal Brown left after the season to become the head coach at West Virginia and was replaced by Chip Lindsey, who was Auburn's offensive coordinator last year.
