KNOXVILLE (WBIR) - The Vols kick off the 2014 season next Sunday, and final preparations will be underway all week as East Tennessee prepares for game day.

In the midst of thousands of students moving in and figuring out their class schedule, there's also a buzz building around the team. They say they are ready to take part in some old traditions, like the Vol walk and running through the T, and maybe even welcoming a new one.

"The atmosphere on the week leading up to game day. SEC games and the first home game, we can't beat it," said Andrew Berry, a junior at the University of Tennessee. "[To] wake up and hear Rocky Top playing in the band. And just to see 50,000 people, all rooting for the Vols."

Even other athletes at the school are gearing up for the season. Head Coach Butch Jones has made it a big point of discussion to connect his team with the community, and other teams on campus.
