Utah State's football players and coaches said this week they don't think they will be affected by Tennessee's loud crowd. But that might be easier said than done.
The Vols have sold out their opener for the first time since 2007. Neyland Stadium has a capacity of 102,455, making it the fourth largest college stadium behind Michigan (109,901), Penn State (106,572) and Ohio State (104,851).
The Aggies' biggest concern is communication along the offensive line, but Kevin Whimpey believes the team will handle the noise just fine.
"We've been to big stadiums before so we aren't too worried about it," he said. "It's just a matter of us going out and executing like we have been practicing."<
