Tennessee was forced into the unfortunate position of canceling the 2022 Orange & White game last March. With ongoing construction at the stadium, there was just no way to hold the event, according to Tennessee officials.
Instead, Tennessee had an “All Vol Weekend” take place that weekend, involving track and field, women’s tennis, baseball, and soccer. Tennessee also broadcasted the spring game that Saturday, which took place on the practice field, to a large screen in Humanities Plaza in Circle Park.
While construction is still happening around and inside Neyland Stadium, Tennessee will be able to return to the traditional Orange and White game format this spring.
The Orange and White game allows Tennessee fans to go into the stadium and see what the team had been working on over the previous few weeks during spring camp. It’s also a chance to see some of the new players added to Tennessee’s roster, like QB Nico Iamaleava and WR Nathan Leacock, in action for the first time.
Tennessee will host its first Orange and White game since 2021 on Saturday, April 15, in Neyland Stadium.
