Tennessee Volunteers News
9-15-14: The Vols have a good young nucleus of talent including QB Justin Worley, but the Oklahoma Sooners were just too much for Tennessee too handle Saturday as they lost 34-10. The Vols made it 13-7 in the second quarter, but the Sooner defense clamped down and thwarted the Volunteer attack all-night. Tennessee’s young offensive line couldn’t hang with the Sooners’ front seven. The Vols running game was shutdown and Worley threw for two interceptions. It doesn’t get much easier as Butch Jones’ team travel to Athens to take on a hungry Georgia team.
9-9-14: The Vols didn’t coast like many expected them to against Arkansas State, but they were comfortably ahead for long stretches of their 34-19 win in Knoxville this past weekend. QB Justin Worley continued his efficiency finishing the game 22-for-38 for 247 yards and three total touchdowns. The Tennessee defense limited Arkansas State's offense all game holding them to 4-for-17 on third down conversions. The Vols travel to Norman this weekend to take on a high-powered Oklahoma squad.
9-4-14: The Vols got 273 passing yards and three touchdowns from quarterback Justin Worley last Sunday in their 38-7 defeat of Utah State. In total, 11 different players caught passes from Worley and 21 true freshmen played in the game. However, it was the Volunteer defense that was impressive to me. They limited the explosive Chuckie Keeton to just 12 rushing yards and picked him off twice. Tennessee should continue to roll next week when they host the Arkansas State Wolves.
