Tennessee football: Smokey Grey unis debut for home tilt with Georgia
Tennessee's "Smokey Grey" line of alternate uniforms has recieved yet another make-over.
The 2015 edition is a darker update that includes the iconic checker pattern at the bottom of the stripe on the helmet and pants.

The Volunteers entered the season as the favorites to win the SEC East, however, due to some heartbreaking, last-second losses, UT is now looking at a 2-3 record.
The boys from Rocky Top are hoping to rebound this weekend when they welcome the current SEC East favorite, Georgia, to Knoxville. But, Georgia is looking for a rebound of their own after Alabama inflicted a 38-10 statement win over the Bulldogs in Athens last week.
The last time Tennessee unleashed the Smokey Grey on Georgia was their last trip to Knoxville in 2013, and the unranked Vols came up three points short of upsetting the No. 6 Bulldogs.
So, perhaps, the darker unis will give UT the edge it needs to get over the hump and upset UGA.
