KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Any mention of the names Dooley and Curry around the Southeast conjures images of some memorable Georgia-Georgia Tech games from the 1980s.
The latest Dooley-Curry matchup shouldn't provide nearly as much intrigue.
Bill Curry will continue his final season before retirement Saturday by leading Georgia State into Neyland Stadium for Tennessee's home opener. The likely mismatch pits Curry against Tennessee coach Derek Dooley, the son of former Georgia coach Vince Dooley. Curry went 2-5 against Georgia while coaching Georgia Tech from 1980-86.
Georgia State, a Football Championship Subdivision program, is coming off a 33-6 loss to South Carolina State. Tennessee opened its season last week with a 35-21 victory over North Carolina State. Tennesseewants to avoid getting caught looking ahead to next week's game with Florida.
