Aggies to face sold out crowd in Tennessee
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."<
"We've got that dial at max volume," he said. "Rocky Top has been playing, crowd noise has been playing, plus a little mix of what we usually do. We just try to concentrate that on the offense and the kicking game, but not much more than we have in the past when we've gone into these environments."
