Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (0-0) begin the 2016 preseason this week against the San Diego Chargers (0-0). Kickoff at Nissan Stadium (capacity 69,143) is scheduled for 7:00pm CDT on Saturday, August 13th. The contest is a preview of the two teams’ November 6th regular season meeting in San Diego.
The game will be televised regionally on the Titans Preseason TV Network, including flagship WKRN News 2 in Nashville.
Nashville, TN – On the field, Titans fans will get their first glimpse of the team as constructed by new general manager Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey, each of whom were named to their posts in January by controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk.
Although he is a native of Union City, TN, Robinson is a newcomer to the organization. Mularkey was hired as tight ends coach in 2014, promoted to assistant head coach/tight ends coach during the 2015 offseason, and then spent the final nine games of 2015 as interim head coach.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans has selected Clemson Tigers outside linebacker (OLB) Kevin Dodd in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft with the 33rd Overall pick.
At 6’5″, the 277 pound Dodd ran a 4.86 second 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. He has a 30 1/2″ vertical leap and a 9’2″ broad jump.
At Clemson, Dodd had 12 sacks, 23.5 tackles and 62 tackles for a loss last season. He ended with a season streak of five consecutive games with a sack.
Tennessee (8-7, 1-2 SEC) at Georgia (8-5, 1-2 SEC)
Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 | 7:01pm ET (6:01pm CT)
Knoxville, TN – Tennessee seniors Armani Moore and Devon Baulkman likely play their final collegiate game in their home state on Wednesday as the Volunteers travel to face Georgia at Stegeman Coliseum. Tipoff in Athens is set for 7:00pm ET (6:01pm CT) on the SEC Network.
Baulkman and Moore — along with fellow Peach State native Shembari Phillips — will be looking to grab the first Tennessee (8-7, 1-2 SEC) victory in Athens since 2011 when the Vols pulled out a narrow 59-57 victory. UT dropped its only meeting with Georgia last season, falling by a 56-53 count in Stegeman Coliseum.

The victory snapped a three-game skid for the Volunteers and improved their home record to a perfect 5-0. UT is still seeking its first win away from Knoxville under head coach Rick Barnes — an ailment it will seek to remedy as it makes only its second-ever appearance in the Emerald City.
