KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Right at kickoff, there were several empty patches in the upper deck of Neyland Stadium, and it doesn’t look like it will be a sellout.
There were still somewhere between 7,000 and 8,000 tickets remaining on Wednesday of this week, and just under 100 club seats were still unsold. The Vols also had around 2,000 season tickets remaining.
Western Kentucky returned 8,500 tickets for the game.
