Tennessee legend Chuck Smith will be the Volunteers honorary captain for the Vols first game against Georgia Tech, per a school spokesman.
Smith was picked in the second round of the 1992 draft after two stellar seasons at Tennessee. Georgia Tech’s captain will be legendary wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Earlier today Chick-fil-A announced that Al Wilson would be the Volunteers representative, but that was incorrect.
This year’s second Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game – two days after Alabama and Florida State play the first — will start at 8 p.m. ET from Atlanta, Georgia, in the brand-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Volunteers are considered the favorite in the game.
