KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The enthusiasm surrounding the start of Butch Jones' coaching tenure at Tennessee might not pack Neyland Stadium just yet.

Tennessee associate athletic director Chris Fuller said season ticket sales were at about 58,000 as of Wednesday morning. That represents a 2.8 percent decrease from last year, when about 59,700 had been sold at this point. Fuller says he still expects overall attendance to increase after it fell to its lowest level since 1979 last year.

Fuller remains optimistic that Tennessee's average attendance this season could reach 95,000, which would represent its highest total since 2010. Tennessee had an average attendance of 89,965 last year.

Fuller says slightly over 90,000 tickets have been purchased for Saturday's game with Austin Peay. Last year's home opener with Georgia State drew 87,821 fans.
