No. 23 Tennessee is back home at Neyland Stadium on Saturday to host Texas San Antonio in a 4p.m. Eastern Time on SEC Network, as the Vols look to rebound from a mistake-riddled 29-16 loss to Florida Saturday night at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.

Tennessee was penalized 10 times for 79 yards in the loss, had a costly interception in Florida’s 20-point second quarter and trailed 26-7 at halftime after the Gators went 7-for-8 on third down in the first half.

“General Neyland probably said it best,” Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said Monday to open his weekly press conference, “the team that makes the fewest mistakes will win. We obviously did not play to that standard on Saturday. Everybody in the building is disappointed. I still sense it from the players today. The disappointment and hurt. And a lot of lessons for us to learn and we gotta learn quick.

“At the same time,” Heupel continued, “those lessons gotta be carried forward. But we gotta watch this one too. We got a really good opponent (UTSA) coming into to Neyland this Saturday. It’s a football team that’s won a bunch of games over the last couple of years. Experienced, have playmakers. They’re big, strong on the line scrimmage, both sides football, too. So it’ll be a really good test.”
