Josh Heupel discusses Vols' coaching staff applying analytics to game strategy

No. 3 Tennessee (7-0, 3-0 SEC) will host No. 17 Kentucky (4-1, 2-2 SEC) Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Week 9.

Kickoff between the Vols and Wildcats is slated for 7 p.m. EDT (ESPN).

Second-year Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel met with media Monday and discussed playing Kentucky in Week 9.

Heupel was asked how Tennessee’s coaching staff applies analytics to their game strategy.

“For us during our gameday meetings, as a staff, offense, defense, special teams, understanding the game plan,”

Heupel said. “How we see things possibly unfolding,

situations that we would potentially be in, trying to talk through those things.

“Analytics is a part of the game. I think there’s still a feel,

an eb and flow to every football game too,

that for me, is important to have a feel for during the course of it.”
