EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - In his first year as head coach at Tennessee, Butch Jones wants to rebuild the Vols. In his first year as head coach at Oregon, Mark Helfrich wants the Ducks to stay the course.


The two teams meet on Saturday.


The second-ranked Ducks will be the toughest test so far during Jones' tenure with the Vols, who also face No. 18 Florida, No. 9 Georgia, No. 13 South Carolina and No. 1 Alabama in coming weeks.


Former Vols coach Derek Dooley was let go in part because of his 0-15 record against Top 25 teams. Tennessee has lost 16 straight against ranked foes.


Helfrich was Oregon's offensive coordinator the past four years and was promoted when Chip Kelly went to the NFL. The Ducks went 46-7 the past four years under Kelly.
