The game Saturday marks the first time LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis returns to Neyland Stadium, where he coached the Vols’ defense for 14 years until the firing of his boss, coach Phillip Fulmer.

He will want to represent his past by being an excellent defensive coordinator against Tennessee this coming Saturday.”
