    Wednesday's Tennessee Football Briefing (7/30/14)

    We are just two days away from the start of Tennessee football practice on Friday night. On Thursday, Butch Jones and selected players will meet with the media to preview the 2014 season. That press conference will be streamed live on UTSports.com. 

    On Tuesday, Butch Jones spoke to Vol Nation in the Mid-State at the Wildhorse Saloon, which is covered in today's briefing.

    Here's a look at the latest news on the Vols and Team 118:

    ARENCIBIA_620x406.jpg
    On Tuesday evening (7/29) against the Yankees, #VFL and current Texas first baseman J.P. Arencibia had a career night at the plate despite the Rangers' 12-11 defeat at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

    Arencibia went 4-for-5 with two homers and a career-high seven RBIs, including a grand slam home run in the 7th inning. The grand slam sparked the beginning of an offensive rally for the Rangers, marking the first grand slam home run by a Rangers player this season and the first since July 3, 2013. Arencibia's performance was also just the 17th time in club history for a player to collect seven RBIs in a single game. 

    Since his return to the Major Leagues on July 18, the former Vol is 11-for-44 (.250) with five home runs and 16 RBI in 12 games.

    Here is the latest coverage on Arencibia and his big night:
