TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer says this is a very important week for the Vols because of missing players.
The Vols are in Tampa preparing for their Outback Bowl game Jan. 1 against Wisconsin.
Three starters are ineligible to play in the bowl because of academics---wide receiver Lucas Taylor, linebacker Rico McCoy and defensive tackle Demonte Bolden.
The team had a two-hour workout Wednesday in full pads.
