The Tennessee Volunteers head to second ranked Oregon Saturday a 28 point underdog and without defensive lineman Maurice Couch.

Thursday Vols head coach Butch Jones told Nashville radio station 104.5 The Zone the school has ruled Couch ineligible for the game while it investigates the alleged illegal benefits he received.

Couch was one of five players named in a recent article by Yahoo Sports that detailed illegal payments to college players by NFL agents.

It's alleged Couch received $1,350.
