    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Josh Heupel knows exactly what he walked into as the latest head football coach of the Tennessee Volunteers — a tradition-filled program that has struggled of late. “This is one of the iconic programs in all of college sports, in all of college football,” Heupel said. Tennessee has plenty of history with this the 125th season in school history. The Volunteers have won 13 Southeastern Conference football championships and count six national championships, the last in 1998. But their last SEC Eastern Division title came in 2007. Heupel is the fifth different coach — not counting interim or acting coaches — since the end of the 2008 season. He takes over a program that went 3-7 last season and currently is in the midst of an NCAA investigation into the recruiting issues that cost Jeremy Pruitt and nine others their jobs in January. The man who quarterbacked Oklahoma to a national title and who went 28-8 over the past three seasons at UCF sees opportunity in Knoxville. He has 14 starters back from...
    The Tennessee Titans have no positive tests, and they will host the Buffalo Bills as rescheduled for Tuesday night, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The Bills (4-0) left for Nashville on Monday night, but the Titans needed another day without a positive test for the game to go forward. The Titans (3-0) had the NFL’s first COVID-19 outbreak with eight testing positive Sept. 29 when their facility was shut down and reached a total of 24 players and personnel. Tennessee now has gone without a positive test on six of the past nine days, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the NFL the Titans commented on all the test results. The Titans last played Sept. 27, a 31-30 win in Minnesota over the Vikings. They returned to their facility Saturday and were allowed by the NFL to practice Sunday with only players, coaches and trainers after a staff member tested positive.
    The Tennessee Titans are on track to play the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday night after the latest round of testing returned zero positive COVID-19 cases.  The Titans temporarily shutdown their training facility on Saturday after a coach tested positive but were able to return on Monday after another round of testing showed no new cases, ESPN reported.  COWBOYS’ DAK PRESCOTT TO BE RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL ANKLE SURGERY: REPORT Trouble for Tennessee began last month when the Titans added cornerback Greg Mabin from its practice squad to the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sept 24.

    Week 4 will be remembered as the first time COVID-19 made a heavy impact on the 2020 NFL season. Most of the week’s attention was directed at Tennessee — news came out each day beginning Monday of more Titans positive tests. That led to the postponement of the Titans vs. Steelers game to Week 7. Late in the week, Cam Newton’s positive test threw New England’s game at Kansas City into doubt. And a false positive on the New Orleans Saints threatened to affect their game against the Detroit Lions. This is a timeline of each day’s new COVID-19 developments during Week 4.

            by Teresa M. Walker  NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — The positive test results keep coming for the Tennessee Titans in the NFL’s first outbreak of COVID-19. If the positive results don’t stop, the Titans’ next game, against Buffalo (3-0) on Oct. 11, could be at risk, forcing the NFL into even more rearranging of the schedule. The NFL postponed Sunday’s game between New England and the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs after “positive COVID-19 tests on both teams.” ESPN reported on Saturday that Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was among those testing positive. The league also pushed the Colts-Bears game from an early kickoff to 4:25 p.m. to fill the slot left open by the Patriots-Chiefs. On Saturday, another Titans player and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19, raising the team’s total to 18 since Sept. 24, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the NFL nor the Titans had announced the latest results. This is the fifth straight day that at least one member...
