Tennessee's Lane Kiffin is still two weeks away from making his Vols head coaching debut in an actual regular season game, but this weekend's schedule has the look and feel of a dry run.
The Vols staged a 4:15 p.m. walk-through practice Friday at Haslam Field, wearing the same gear and starting their brief session at the identical time walk-throughs will take place on home Fridays throughout the season.
Saturday, Kiffin and the Vols will make their way on foot to Neyland Stadium -- a Vol Walk "walk-through," if you will -- about 90 minutes before the scheduled start of the team's final big scrimmage of the preseason.
Start time for the scrimmage? Exactly 12:21 p.m. Eastern time, or two weeks to the minute before UT kicks off the Kiffin era and 2009 season against Western Kentucky.
UT students with a valid university ID are invited to Saturday's scrimmage and should enter through gates 1, 2 and 3. Gates open at noon.
