Orange & White game won't be played on April 18

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- UT announced that the Vols Orange and White Game will not be played at its scheduled time of April 18 due to coronavirus concerns.

WVLT Sports partners broke the news, saying Tennessee football won't conduct spring training activities until mid-April.

The SEC confirmed later on March 13 that all "organized team activities, including competitions, team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, will be suspended through Apr. 15."

April 15th coincides with the beginning of recruiting's "dead period," when coaches cannot contact possible recruits.

The status of the game will "be determined at a later date," UT Sports said.
