Mr. Gunner 10 is on target.  Utah State wins by 7 pts.  UT will be lucky to go 6-6 this season.  The program needs a lot of work.

I'll take Utah St money line. Yes Tennessee has way better recruits and they are playing at home but I'll take the +195 that Keeton and company pull off the upset. First week of the season nobody really know how good these teams are.

Ok..St @ Floor St. (Arlington, TX) --Dog Covered

Expecting the same result for this game.....DOG COVERED!

Before Chuckie Keeton got injured, Utah St was a gravy train!
With Chuckie back in the drivers seat I'm hopping back on board.

60% on Tenn, but the line keeps falling.  I usualy stay away Week 1 so I can see the teams first, but this smells big time.

UTAH STATE -4

My local has the line at TN -6.5. Printed news. Day of game. Works as a disadvantage sometimes but for this game with the line dropping like a rock I am all over USU. Good luck to all. 

Close one IMO
USU 21
TN    17

Take Utah St and the points.  I like the over more than anything else in this game.  The athletes for Tenn will have some big plays but they will also turn the ball over and creating points for U-state.

Over 5 dimes / U-State 3 dimes

Tennessee will have difficulty this year with teams like Georgia, Florida, etc. They are young but talented, it will take a few more years of recruiting and stability to get back to the top. With that being said, they will not lose to Utah State...They are too fast, too SEC strong and the big factor, This game has sold out in Knoxville, you will have 110k fans stomping, screaming, and raising he** everytime Utah State gets the ball. Lets not forget that Utah State is a very young team also and coming to UT will be tough. If they make a mistake or 2 early they could blown out fast. Tennessee always gets overlooked, lately it has been deserved but if you look at Tennessee football history, it is among the top 5 all time. Strong program, strong history, they will rise again soon. Look at NFL rosters right now and you will be amazed at the number of UT players on those rosters. I am seeing all the posts about Chucky Keeton, Can Keeton throwing from his butt? thats were you will find him alot tonight!!!

One thing is obvious about your post and that is you are a solid Vols fan, not that your screen name didnt give it away. I agree with the SEC atmosphere in Knoxville being somewhat a factor in this game, however I must politely disagree with the intangibles mentioned as well as some of the info you posted. 
USU has 8 starters on O and 7 on D that are either juniors or seniors. So as far as starters go I would not go as far as to say they are young. 11 of them combined are returning starters. On the contrary, the Vols basically have brand new starters on both sides of the trenches and this can be an eye opener especially offensively. USU has a very strong D, regardless of conference. The Vols O line has their work cut out for them. 
And to make a predicition that Keeton will be playing the game from his behind is more of a fandom statement than fact because no one knows what D Tennessee will have. I am sure their recruiting class is great, they are an SEC school, that is expected. But to say a potential Heisman candidate will be on his back with so many unknowns is a bit ahead of the situation. 
In the end I think USU poses a big threat to the Vols. And i feel the game will be close. That being said, as a bettor and not a fan, I will take the points in the opening game for these two teams.

I already put 100usd on Utah st plus 4 but I am a little worried now seeing the majority on this thread likes them....... That's never a good sign especially on this forum.

I think you make great points, and yes I am a UT fan but I never bet based on teams I like. I bet on knowledge, Utah State could win the game but as I stated before Utah State only has a total of 7 starters returning according to Phil Steele. We will see, I do know that Tennessee has some young studs. Multiple bench pressing over 450..As always anything can happen in football but it will be interesting in the 3rd and 4th quarter. If Utah State doesn't tire out, they have a shot to win

I believe the people are drinking the Kool-aid with Utah State, I do want to thank the Utah State backers because I got Tn -2.5 after buying a point for 1 dime. And to honest I am not just a fan, I know a little about UT football, UT not only wins this game they physically hurt Utah State.
