TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS (5-7, 1-7 SEC) 2011 SEASON REVIEW

THE BASICS

Record: 5-7 (1-7 SEC) Head Coach: Derek Dooley, 2nd year at UT (11-14)

VOLUNTEER STAT LEADERS RUSHING PASSING RECEIVING DEFENSIVE

The 2011 season was one of growth for the Volunteer football program. The Vols featured some of the top freshmen talent in the nation as linebacker A.J. Johnson was named to a school-record five Freshman All-American teams. He was joined on several of those All-American teams by linebacker Curt Maggitt, defensive back Brian Randolph and offensive lineman Marcus Jackson. UT played the third-toughest schedule in the nation, competing in a league that featured the two participants in the BCS Championship game. Of the Vols 11 FBS opponents, eight competed in bowl games. Sophomore receiver Da’Rick Rogers was selected a first-team All-SEC pick by the Associated Press after he led the conference in receptions (67) and receiving yards (1040). Senior defensive lineman Malik Jackson was the Vols’ other All-SEC first-team selection as he racked up 51 tackles including 10.5 tackles for loss.

Tauren Poole - 187 att., 693 yds., 5 TD Tyler Bray - 147-247, 1983 yds., 17 TD/6 INT Da’Rick Rogers - 67 rec., 1040 yds., 9 TD Austin Johnson - 81 tkls, 5.0 TFL, 4 INT

Sophomore quarterback Tyler Bray posted some huge numbers early in the season prior to suffering a broken thumb against Georgia. He became the second player in UT history to throw for 400 yards in a game and he set the school record for completion percentage in a single-game (82.9), completing 34-of-41 for career-high 405 yards vs. Cincinnati (9/10). Senior linebacker Austin Johnson led the team in tackles with 81 and topped the team with four interceptions. His four pick-offs tied for the national lead among all linebackers and were the most interceptions by a Vols’ linebacker since Jackie Walker in 1970. Johnson was selected to play in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game after the season. Senior tailback Tauren Poole was selected to the East-West Shrine Game after the season after he led the team in rushing with 693 yards and five rushing touchdowns.

Johnson, and DB Brian Randolph), one week after Tennessee started a school-record six true freshmen started at Arkansas: WR DeAnthony Arnett, QB Justin Worley, Jackson, Johnson, DB Justin Coleman, and Randolph. Tennessee started five true freshmen vs. Middle Tennessee: QB Justin Worley, LG Marcus Jackson, LB A.J. Johnson, SS Brian Randolph, and CB Justin Coleman.  Worley started for Tennessee in three consecutive games (South Carolina, MTSU, Arkansas) and is the sixth true freshman to start for UT at QB since 1994 (P. Manning, 1994; C. Clausen, 2000; B. Schaeffer and E. Ainge, 2004; T. Bray, 2010).  Tennessee is the only team in Division I FBS with three freshmen (true or redshirt) among its top five tackle leaders.  Tennessee played a total of 16 true freshmen in 2011 and 21 freshmen overall, including five redshirt freshmen: P Matt Darr, RB Jaron Toney, K Derrick Brodus, DL Greg Clark, and LB Martaze Jackson.  True Freshmen Playing for Tennessee in 2011 (16) OFFENSE (10): QB: Justin Worley, RB: Marlin Lane, Tom Smith, Devrin Young, WR: DeAnthony Arnett, Vincent Dallas, TE: Brendan Downs, Cameron Clear, OL: Marcus Jackson, Antonio Richardson.

FRESH STARTS

 Over the last two seasons, a total of 46 Vols have made their first Division I FBS starts. A total of 25 UT players have made their first career start in 2011, three more than of the total of 22 Vols who made their first career starts a year ago in 2010.  Tennessee Players Making First Career Starts in 2011 (25) OFFENSE (11): QB: Justin Worley, RB: Devrin Young, FB: Ben Bartholomew, WR: DeAnthony Arnett, Rajion Neal, Da’Rick Rogers, TE: Brendan Downs, Mychal Rivera, Cameron Clear, OL: Alex Bullard, Marcus Jackson.

OFFENSE DYNAMIC DUO

 In the first two games of the year, Hunter and Rogers partnered up for the 18th and 19th combinations in UT history in which two receivers recorded 100-yard games in the same game. Against Montana, Hunter (146) and Rogers (100) became the first tandem to each register 100-plus yards receiving in the same game since Lucas Taylor (118) and Austin Rogers (112) did so against Southern Miss. on 9/8/2007.  The sophomore sensations followed it up against Cincinnati with a repeat performance, with Hunter posting a career-high 156 yards and Rogers notching another 100-yard outing. It marked the second time in Tennessee history in which the Vols have had multiple 100-yard receivers in consecutive games.

 Bray connected with Hunter for an 81-yard touchdown with 8:36 left in the first quarter against Montana. The strike marked the second time the duo has hooked up for 80-plus yards, making them the third pair in UT history to do so. Last season on the first play against Ole Miss, Bray hit Hunter for an 80-yard TD.  Other duos are Erik Ainge and Robert Meachem (84 yards at Memphis and 80 yards at Cal in 2006) and Alan Cockrell and Clyde Duncan (85 yards vs. Vanderbilt and 80 yards vs. Alabama in 1983).  The 81-yarder ranked tied for the ninth-longest pass play in UT history

 Sophomore quarterback Tyler Bray missed five games over six weeks after suffering a fractured right thumb in the fourth quarter against Georgia on Oct. 8.  The sophomore slinger leads all active SEC quarterbacks with six career 300-yard passing games. Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson is second with five. Bray has eclipsed 300 yards passing in six of his 12 career starts.  Bray’s 14 TDs and 1,579 yards through the first four games were the second-most by a Tennessee QB. In 1997, Peyton Manning (1997) compiled 1,669 yards and 16 TDs en route to single-season school records of 37 TDs and 3,819 yards.  Bray has averaged 294.1 yards passing per game in his 12 career starts, and Tennessee is 8-4 in those games, including a 6-1 mark at Neyland Stadium.

REVIEW WORLEY’S WORLD

 With his first start against South Carolina, quarterback Justin Worley became one of just 18 true freshman QB to start a game this season for an NCAA FBS team this season.  Worley’s collegiate debut came in the fourth quarter of UT’s game at No. 2 Alabama on Oct. 22. He did not attempt a pass and rushed once for no gain.  The Vols are one of just four teams to start a true freshman at quarterback in each of the last two seasons after Tyler Bray started the final five games of 2010. Memphis and Colorado State have also started a true freshman at QB in two straight seasons, while Rutgers has done so in three consecutive years.

Denzel Perryman- Miami (Fla.)).  Johnson at least shared the Vols’ lead in tackles four times this season (UF, LSU, Bama, SC).  Johnson ranked second on Tennessee’s all-time true freshman tackle-leaders list with 80.  Johnson was the first true freshman in UT history to record three 10-plus tackle games, recording 13 against No. 2 Alabama, 11 vs. No. 1 LSU and 12 vs. No. 14 South Carolina. He was also the first Tennessee defender to notch three consecutive double-digit tackle performances since Nick Reveiz did it four straight times in 2010 (Oregon-LSU).  Johnson was awarded SEC Freshman of the Week (Oct. 22) honors for his career-best 13-tackle performance at Alabama which rank as the second-most by a Tennessee true freshman, behind only Berry’s 14-tackle game vs. UK in 2007. Johnson now holds three of UT’s top-four tackle games by a true freshman, joining Berry’s two efforts, and a 12-tackle game by Reggie White against Virginia in 1980.  Single-Game Tackles by UT True Freshmen Player Tackles Opponent Date Eric Berry 14 at Kentucky 11/24/07 A.J.

He’s the first freshman to have more than one fumble recovery since Eric Berry had a pair in 2007.  Johnson ranked 13th nationally with 46 tackles against opponents ranked in the AP poll. He was also seventh with 8.1 stops per SEC game.

JOHNSON SQUARED

 Senior linebacker Austin Johnson led Tennessee with 81 tackles and at least shared the team lead in stops five times in 2011, including a team-high nine vs. Vanderbilt in his last game at Neyland Stadium. Matching a team best with Prentiss Waggner against Georgia, Johnson had a career-high 11 tackles. Johnson was one of seven Vols with multiple quarterback hurries (two).  Johnson also led the team with four interceptions, all in the last six games, and ended with five for his career. His first came on Alabama’s first drive, when he intercepted Tide QB A.J. McCarron, UT’s first in a string of 349 defensive snaps, dating back to the third quarter of the season opener against Montana (9/3). Johnson also had INTs against MTSU and Vanderbilt, while becoming just one of six individuals to intercept Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson.  His four interceptions were the most by a UT linebacker since Jackie Walker in 1970. Additionally, his four picks were tied for the second-most nationally among linebackers and are tied for 22nd overall.  In SEC games, Johnson ranked 12th with 7.2 tackles per conference contest.

LEGIT MAGGITT

 Despite missing the South Carolina game with a calf injury, Curt Maggitt ranked tied for third on the UT squad and second among all SEC freshmen with 56 stops. Maggitt recorded a careerhigh seven tackles against Kentucky, Vanderbilt, LSU and Buffalo.  Maggitt recorded a career-best 2.5 tackles for loss against Vanderbilt, the most by a Vol in a game in 2011. His 5.5 TFLs in 2011 were fourth on the team.

MALIK’S MAYHEM

 After posting 14 tackles in the first four games, senior defensive tackle Malik Jackson almost doubled that mark in the final four games of October with 27 stops. Jackson set his career high with nine tackles against Alabama, a week after matching it with eight against LSU.  Jackson’s team-best 10 QB pressures were the most by a Vol since Wes Brown had 12 in 2008.  In the last four October outings, Jackson notched 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, three quarterback hurries and a pass breakup.  Jackson saw a similar explosion starting in mid-October as a


WAGGNER ALL OVER THE SECONDARY

 Against Alabama, Palardy executed UT’s lone fake punt of the season in the second quarter, completing a five-yard pass to Anthony Anderson for his first career catch. Later in the drive, Palardy converted his career-long 52-yard field goal to tie the game at six.  After posting just one touchback – as a team – in 2010, Palardy booted six balls to the end zone in 2011. Palardy boomed his 43 kickoffs for a 63.1 average.

 After injuries to Palardy and Chip Rhome, redshirt freshman Derrick Brodus was called to Neyland Stadium less than an hour before kickoff against MTSU. Brodus handled kickoff duties, and was successful on his lone field goal attempt, a 21-yarder, and all three of his PATs.

HISTORY

DEVRIN DASHES

 Sophomore kicker Michael Palardy’s career-long 52-yard field goal in the second quarter at Alabama marked the longest by a Tennessee kicker since Jeff Hall made a 53-yarder against Oklahoma State on Sept. 30, 1995.  The field goal tied for the seventh-longest on the road and tied for the 14th-longest in Tennessee history. He went 9-for-14 in 2011.

REVIEW

 Sophomore defensive back Eric Gordon returned a gamewinning interception 90 yards in overtime vs. Vanderbilt last week. The INT return for a TD was the first defensive score in OT in the FBS since Sept. 9, 2005, when Ohio DB Dion Byrum picked off Tyler Palko of Pittsburgh and returned it for a score.  The 90-yard returned tied for the fifth-longest INT return in school history. His 107 INT return yards in 2011 were the most on the Vols.  Gordon was just the third Vol since 2000 to have at least 100 INT return yards in a season. Janzen Jackson had 114 in 2010, while Eric Berry topped the UT record books with an SEC record 265 INT return yards in 2008 to one-up his 222 return yards as a freshman in 2007.  Five of Gordon’s 16 tackles were for loss, making him one of six Vols with at least five TFLs.

 Junior Prentiss Waggner shifted around the secondary in 2011 and produced from all angles. Waggner led the Vols with nine pass breakups.  Waggner’s second interception of the season came on Vanderbilt’s final possession in regulation and prevented any opportunity for a game-winning field goal. The INT was the seventh of Waggner’s career.  Waggner had a team-best nine passes defended, matching his total from 2010, and was tied for sixth on the squad with 48 tackles. His 40 solo tackles were second on the Vols.  Waggner turned in five tackles, an interception and a sack against South Carolina. His 54-yard interception return against the Gamecocks matched his career-high 54-yard return against UT Martin in 2010, which was the Vols’ longest INT return that season.

PLAYERS

KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee’s 2011 football season began with the longest weather delay in school history. But lightning and high winds only delayed a first-half offensive deluge as the Vols rolled to a 42-16 victory over Montana in Neyland Stadium. The Vols jumped out to a 14-point lead early in the first quarter thanks to a couple big plays from sophomore receivers Da’Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter. Rogers caught a 47-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Bray after the Vols recovered a fumbled punt following their first possession of the game. Montana’s next drive sputtered at the Tennessee 41, and three plays later Bray connected with Hunter for an 81-yard touchdown that gave UT a 14-0 lead with 8:36 left in the first quarter. “The game went just like practice did,” said Hunter, who set a career high with 146 receiving yards. “We practiced like this all spring and all summer.” After those two quick-strike scores, the Vols (1-0) were more methodical on their next two scoring drives. True freshman tailback Marlin Lane ended a 12-play, 96-yard drive with a 9-yard touchdown reception to give the Vols a 21-0 lead, and senior Tauren Poole scored from 8 yards out to end a 13-play, 76-yard drive. But the Vols’ productive first half wasn’t without a few sputters -- and that didn’t include the 1-hour, 33-minute weather delay that began about 10 minutes before the scheduled kickoff. That weather delay, which caused the Vols to abandon their traditional entrance through the ‘T’ for just the second time since 1965, wasn’t much of a factor. If the weather was bad luck, the Vols had a little more good fortune when it came to loose balls. Tennessee fumbled the ball six times but didn’t lose any. It also had two interceptions overturned thanks to Montana penalties. There were a few miscues as well, including an 80-yard Montana touchdown in the second quarter on a busted coverage, and an 82-yard drive surrendered in the fourth quarter with mostly reserves on the field. It also struggled to get a ground game going for much of the first half, picking up 67 yards on 27 carries in the first 30 minutes. It got better in the second half, especially for Poole, who finished with 98 yards on 24 carries.

Bray’s Career Day Powers UT Past Bearcats KNOXVILLE -- There are plenty of words that would fit Tennessee’s passing game in its 45-23 victory over Cincinnati. Wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers thinks he knows the best one. “It wouldn’t call it easy. I would call it routine,” Rogers said. “You really just play like you play in practice, and it carries over in the game.” Led by a record day from quarterback Tyler Bray, Tennessee’s passing game was clicking at a level that hasn’t been seen in quite a while. And in a couple cases, ever. Bray connected on 34 of his 41 passes for four touchdowns and a career-best 405 yards. The prime beneficiaries -- and contributors -- were fellow sophomores Da’Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter. A week after the two combined for 246 receiving yards in a victory over Montana, they became the first receivers in Tennessee history to record 10 catches in the same game and the first to record back-to-back 100-yard games. Tennessee’s running game, which struggled at times last week against the Grizzlies, got good production from senior Tauren Poole, who finished with 101 yards on 21 carries. The Vols’ defense, though, took a while to warm up. Cincinnati scored on its first two possessions, although one was delayed by a successful onside kick by the Vols. But after ending the first quarter tied at 14-14, the Bearcats found a brick wall on a pair of fourth-and-1 attempts that helped swing the game toward Tennessee. Freshman linebacker A.J. Johnson and junior college transfer Maurice Couch blew up a fourth-and-1 from the Cincinnati 49-yard line early in the second quarter. Holding on to that same 21-14 lead, Malik Jackson and Brent Brewer stuffed quarterback Zach Collaros on another fourth-and-1 at the UT 46-yard line with a little more than 5 minutes remaining in the half. The Vols rode the momentum of that stop to a 53-yard touchdown drive that ended with a 15-yard pass from Bray to Rogers, who had two touchdowns to go with his 10 catches for 100 yards. Hunter finished with 156 yards on 10 catches, none of which went for more than 33 yards. In the second half, the Vols’ offense was a little less aerodynamic, but Bray scored his first career rushing touchdown to give the Vols a 35-14 lead just after halftime. His 16-yard pass to Zach Rogers at the end of the third quarter all but sealed the game at 42-17.

PLAYERS

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Tennessee’s trip to The Swamp turned out to be a real stick in the mud. Playing nearly the entire game without wide receiver Justin Hunter, Tennessee fell behind early and couldn’t catch back up as No. 16 Florida claimed its seventh consecutive victory over the Vols, 33-23, at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. The Gators (3-0, 1-0 SEC) stifled the Vols’ run game, which finished with minus-9 yards, although three sacks and several bad snaps cost the Vols’ rushing total. Running the ball in big chunks wasn’t a problem for the Gators, though, and Tennessee (2-1, 0-1 SEC) couldn’t find an answer for Chris Rainey. Florida’s 5-foot-9 senior running back had 212 yards of total offense, including 108 yards rushing on 21 carries. He also blocked a UT punt early in the second quarter that led to a field goal. Rainey certainly showed his speed on an 83-yard touchdown reception with 8:08 remaining in the third quarter that gave the Gators a commanding 30-7 lead. Still, the Vols didn’t exactly wilt. UT countered with two more touchdowns and a field goal to pull within 10 points, but the Gators ended any threat of a UT comeback when Matt Elam intercepted Tyler Bray’s pass at the Florida 17 with less than two minutes remaining Despite missing his favorite target, Bray connected for three passing touchdowns, one each to Marlin Lane, Da’Rick Rogers and Mychal Rivera. True freshman DeAnthony Arnett led UT with eight catches for 59 yards in place of Hunter. Asked after the game if he felt like the Vols could have won with Hunter, Bray said, “There’s always ‘what ifs.’ What if I didn’t throw two interceptions and threw five touchdowns instead?” Hunter, who emerged as Bray’s favorite target late last season, landed awkwardly on his left leg on his only reception of the game, a 12-yard completion on the Vols’ fourth play from scrimmage. The sophomore injured his left knee and watched the second half from the sidelines in street clothes. The Vols were able to change things up just before halftime after a slow start on offense. Taking over at its own 11-yard line, Tennessee moved 89 yards in six plays and scored a touchdown on an 8-yard pass from Bray to tailback Marlin Lane with 1:43 to go before the break.

Oct. 1 | Neyland Stadium | Knoxville, Tenn. | 12:30 p.m. | Attendance: 87,758

Vols Roll Past Buffalo KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee’s week of rest didn’t derail its offense. Quarterback Tyler Bray and receiver Da’Rick Rogers kept the SEC’s best passing offense on track, and the Vols gained 531 yards of total offense in a 41-10 victory over Buffalo in front of 87,758 at Neyland Stadium. “Now we turn our attention to what lies ahead,” UT coach Derek Dooley said. That’s a tough stretch of conference games beginning next week at home against Georgia, which defeated Mississippi State 24-10 on Saturday to improve to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the SEC. The Bulldogs will certainly present a tougher test than Buffalo, which mustered only 264 yards of total offense and 10 points in its first trip to Knoxville. Tennessee (3-1) opened a quick 14-0 lead after a 20-yard touchdown run by receiver Rajion Neal and a 7-yard pass to Rogers. Buffalo (1-4) scored its lone touchdown when quarterback Chazz Anderson broke free on a 68-yard touchdown run. The Bulls created a little suspense on the ensuing kickoff, which the Vols mishandled and gave Buffalo possession at the UT 21. Tennessee’s defense held strong, and Peter Fardon missed a 44-yard field goal. From there, the Vols closed the half with 17 unanswered points and led 31-7. Tennessee’s second half wasn’t nearly as productive, but all told the Vols put together a solid day’s work in their last non-conference game until Nov. 5 against Middle Tennessee. Tauren Poole ran for 101 and averaged 5.9 yards per carry, a solid performance after the Vols’ struggles on the ground at Florida. And Rogers, who is now Tennessee’s biggest threat at receiver with Justin Hunter out for the season with a torn ACL, had a career day. The 6-foot-3 sophomore had seven catches for a career-high 180 yards with two touchdowns. True freshman DeAnthony Arnett, who led the Vols in receiving at Florida, also added two more touchdowns. Those two helped make up for Hunter’s absence, said Bray, who threw for 342 yards and completed 21 of his 30 passes. Another true freshman, Knoxville native Devrin Young, made a major impact in his first action this season. Young returned a punt 43 yards to set up the Vols’ first touchdown, and he took the opening kickoff of the second half 34 yards to the UT 42. Tennessee still surrendered a couple of costly plays, most notably Anderson’s big run in the first quarter.

The drive was the longest since the Vols opened the game vs. South Carolina with a drive totaling 8:52 in 2010. • Senior quarterback Matt Simms entered the game when Tyler Bray was shaken up in the fourth quarter. He completed his first two passes and proceeded to cap a scoring drive with a one-yard TD plunge. • Marlin Lane’ s 27-yard catch in the second frame is the longest of his career. He matched his previous season total with six receptions and had a team-high 84 yards. • Mychal Rivera recorded the third five-catch game in his last four contests. With his diving 19-yard catch in the fourth quarter, Rivera eclipsed his career high in yardage with 85. His previous best was 71 vs. Florida this season.

PLAYERS

KNOXVILLE -- For much of the season, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley bemoaned his team’s tendency to give up one or two costly plays. Unfortunately for the Vols, that trend continued in a 20-12 loss to Georgia in front of 102,455 fans in Neyland Stadium. After finishing the first half tied, the Vols surrendered 14 unanswered points in the third quarter and couldn’t catch back up. One big play in particular -- a 73-yard pass to freshman receiver Malcolm Mitchell -- proved costly. Backed up at his 7-yard line, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray hit Mitchell on a play-action pass that took Georgia to the UT 22 and flipped the field in a major way. Two plays later, freshman Isaiah Crowell scored on a 17-yard run to give Georgia a 20-6 lead with 4:51 remaining in the third quarter. The Bulldogs moved the ball 38 yards on eight plays and scored a touchdown on their first possession of the second half after forcing UT off the field in three plays. While Georgia moved the ball with ease out of halftime, picking up 177 of its 366 yards of total offense in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) began the second half in an offensive funk. The Vols had just 11 yards of total offense in the third quarter on 11 plays. And a flagging ground game didn’t get any better after halftime. In fact, it got worse. UT finished with minus-20 yards on the ground, the second time in two conference games UT has finished with negative rushing yards. Senior tailback Tauren Poole had 7 yards on seven carries before leaving during the second the quarter with a hamstring injury. The bad news wasn’t limited to the ground game, either. Quarterback Tyler Bray, who finished with 251 yards on 18-of-33 passing, left the game with about 4 1/2 minutes remaining after his throwing hand slammed into a Georgia defender’s helmet. With Bray on the bench, backup Matt Simms took over and scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to finish off a drive 14-play, 76-yard drive that made the score 20-12. Michael Palardy’s extra point was blocked, and the ensuing onside kick attempt went out of bounds, effectively ending Tennessee’s chances. Tennessee ended the first half with some momentum after a 46-yard drive in the final 1:38, and Palardy’s 43-yard field goal as time expired tied the game at 6-6.

Second Half Dooms Vols Against No. 1 LSU KNOXVILLE -- In October 2010, Tennessee came within one play of upsetting LSU in Baton Rouge. In 2011, the outcome was decided long before the final whistle. Top-ranked LSU started slowed but dominated the time of possession -- and the scoreboard -- after halftime to defeat Tennessee 38-7 in front of 101,822 in Neyland Stadium on Saturday. “Not a real complex game there,” UT head coach Derek Dooley said. “They pounded us. I don’t know any other way to say it.” That was certainly the case after halftime, when LSU limited the Vols to just three offensive possessions and controlled the clock on its way to 21 unanswered points. The Tigers began the third quarter with a 12-play drive that lasted seven minutes and eight seconds. Spencer Ware capped the drive with a 1-yard touchdown. Unfortunately for the Vols, it was a nasty bit of foreshadowing. Tennessee’s next possession, its longest of the second half, lasted 5:07 but stalled after reaching the LSU 30. Anthony Anderson downed Matt Darr’s punt at the 1-yard line. Ninety-nine yards and 8:55 later, quarterback Jordan Jefferson scored from 3 yards out to give LSU a commanding 31-7 lead. Tennessee started the day feeling pretty good about where it stood. The Vols held LSU in check during the first quarter -- the first time in 31 quarters it was held scoreless -- until the Tigers unleashed an 89-yard salvo. After hitting Rajion Neal for a 38-yard gain to the LSU 42 with the game tied 0-0, quarterback Matt Simms took another shot down the field that Morris Claiborne snagged at the LSU 6-yard line. Simms, starting his first game since last October, slowed down Claiborne, who was eventually tackled at the Vols’ 5-yard line by Zach Rogers. Two plays later, the Tigers took a 7-0 lead on a 5-yard pass from Jarrett Lee to Reuben Randle. The Vols, taking over at their 10-yard line, went three-and-out on their next series, and LSU countered with a seven-play, 36-yard touchdown drive. Simms threw his second interception on the Vols’ next possession, but the defense, as it did for much of the first half, came up with a big stop. Simms, who finished 6-of-20 passing for 128 yards and two interceptions, accepted much of the blame for Tennessee’s struggles on offense.

HISTORY

Game Notes • The contest marked the first Tennessee-Alabama game the Vols legend Gus Manning has missed since 1946, a 12-0 UT win. It breaks a streak of 65 consecutive games for Manning. • Senior Austin Johnson picked off a first-quarter pass from A.J. McCarron, marking just Tennessee’s second interception of the season and first in a string of 349 defensive snaps, dating back to the third quarter of the season opener versus Montana. • With 13 tackles at Alabama and 11 last week vs. LSU, linebacker A.J. Johnson became just the second true freshman in Tennessee history with two 10+ tackle games. Eric Berry is the only other player to accomplish the feat with games of 14 tackles vs. Kentucky and 12 tackles vs. South Carolina in 2007.

PLAYERS

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For the first 30 minutes in Bryant-Denny Stadium, Tennessee traded punches with No. 2 Alabama. For the last 30 minutes, the Crimson Tide dominated their home turf on the way to a 37-6 victory. Alabama scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter, after the Vols played the Tide to a 6-6 draw in the opening half. That clearly didn’t sit well with the Tide. Tennessee, which limited Alabama to 157 yards in the first half, surrendered 175 yards of offense in the third quarter alone. Alabama had an iron grip in the second half. A.J. McCarron capped the Tide’s first possession of the third quarter with a 2-yard touchdown run. On its next possession, Tennessee couldn’t pick up a yard on fourth down from its 39-yard line. The very next play, McCarron hit Kenny Bell for a touchdown, and the rout was on. The Tide added another touchdown in the third quarter, this on a 12-yard run by star running back Trent Richardson, to run the score to 30-6 in what seemed like a blink. The third quarter hasn’t been Tennessee’s best, especially in SEC play. Entering the game, the Vols had been outscored 38-6 by SEC opponents in the third quarter. Alabama’s outburst on Saturday brings that total to 59-6. Tennessee’s first half of football was about as good as it could have hoped. The Vols’ yardage total was modest -- 114 yards in all -- but they certainly didn’t play like a double-digit underdog. Alabama’s first drive ended with an interception -- just Tennessee’s second takeaway in conference play -- and it set the tone for the rest of the half. The Crimson Tide went three-and-out on its next drive and the Vols took the opening to take a 3-0 lead. Matt Simms hit Mychal Rivera for a 13-yard pass on third down and Da’Rick Rogers came up with an 11-yard reception on fourth down to extend the drive. Michael Palardy connected from 40 yards out, and Tennessee took a 3-0 lead. Alabama answered with a field goal, set up by a 69-yard pass to Marquis Maze. The Vols’ defense, though, dug in and kept Alabama out of the end zone. UT managed that again, holding strong again when Alabama drove down to its 12-yard line. In the second quarter, Tennessee drove 46 yards and Palardy drilled a careerlong 52-yard field goal to tie the game 6-6 with 5:52 remaining in the first half. Palardy helped his own cause, too, completing a pass to Anthony Anderson on a fake punt that extended the drive on fourth down. The field goal was the longest since Jeff Hall hit a 53-yarder against Oklahoma State in 1995.

Vols Fall to No. 14 South Carolina, 14-3 KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee didn’t have any trouble finding big plays on defense against South Carolina. Turning those big plays into points was another story. The Vols couldn’t take advantage of two opportunities deep in Carolina territory in the second half and fell to the 14th-ranked Gamecocks 14-3 in Neyland Stadium. Tennessee’s offense, without its two most productive players in quarterback Tyler Bray and wide receiver Justin Hunter, struggled again. The Vols finished with just 186 yards of total offense and managed just three points despite getting inside the South Carolina 30-yard line four times. True freshman quarterback Justin Worley had a difficult time in his debut as a starter, completing 10 of his 26 passes for 105 yards and two interceptions. Worley’s first interception came on the Gamecocks’ 2-yard line, when free safety D.J. Swearinger stepped in front of tight end Mychal Rivera and grabbed the ball near the goal line. Two plays earlier, Prentiss Waggner returned an interception of his own 54 yards to the South Carolina 2-yard line. He nearly scored, but lineman Cory Gibson and quarterback Connor Shaw tripped him up just shy of the end zone. The real dagger came on South Carolina’s next possession. The Gamecocks (7-1, 5-1 SEC) embarked on a monster drive that lasted nearly 12 minutes. They ran 20 plays and converted six times on third down, the last of which was Shaw’s 5-yard touchdown run on a quarterback draw. On that drive, Carolina never faced a third down with more than 5 yards needed for a conversion. Four were third and 2 yards or shorter, and that caused major problems for the Vols. True freshman LB A.J. Johnson, who had a team-high 12 tackles, provided another spark in the fourth quarter when he recovered Brandon Wilds’ fumble at the South Carolina 28-yard line. On the next play, though, South Carolina’s Stephon Gilmore intercepted Worley’s pass in the end zone. In the second half, South Carolina’s rushing offense — playing its first full game without leading rusher Marcus Lattimore — picked up steam. Brandon Wilds finished with 137 yards on 28 carries. Shaw, who threw for 87 yards and a touchdown, was almost as dangerous on his feet. He ran for 64 yards. The Vols, meanwhile, struggled on the ground again, finishing with just 35 yards rushing. Tailback Tauren Poole had 38 yards on 18 carries. To make matters worse, UT converted just twice in 14 tries on third down. Tennessee scored on its second possession of the game after taking over at the Carolina 18-yard line following a muffed punt by Ace Sanders. The Vols reached the Gamecocks’ 4-yard line, but had to settle for a 22-yard field goal by Michael Palardy and an early 3-0 lead.

PLAYERS

KNOXVILLE -- Heading into the homecoming game against Middle Tennessee State, Tennessee hadn’t made a visit to the end zone -- checkerboard or otherwise -- in more than two games. The Vols snapped a 10-quarter touchdown drought on their second possession and kept on scoring, defeating the Blue Raiders 24-0 Saturday night in Neyland Stadium. The Vols scored all 24 of their points in the first half, and could have added more had they converted two fourth-down tries deep in MTSU territory in the second half. The started scoring early on Saturday night. Austin Johnson intercepted Logan Kilgore’s third pass of the game on the Blue Raiders’ second possession and returned it to the MTSU 7. Three plays later, Tauren Poole scored his first touchdown -- and the Vols’ -- since UT’s loss to top-ranked LSU on Oct. 15. The points piled up quickly the rest of the half. Da’Rick Rogers, who finished with 137 yards receiving on nine catches, scored on a 47-yard touchdown pass which ended an 89-yard drive and gave UT a 14-0 lead with 2:24 left in the first quarter. The Vols’ next score came on another lengthy drive, which lasted nearly 8 minutes and covered 86 yards in 15 plays. Poole’s 7-yard run gave UT a 21-0 lead midway through the quarter, and gave the senior his first multi-touchdown game of 2011 and the fourth of his career. Tennessee added one more score just before halftime, again helped by another turnover. Eric Gordon picked off Jeff Murphy’s pass with less than a minute before halftime, and quarterback Justin Worley guided the Vols 38 yards to the MTSU 3-yard line in just 37 seconds. Derrick Brodus, who subbed for an injured Michael Palardy on kickoffs and place kicks, connected on a 21-yard field goal as time expired to give Tennessee a 24-0 lead at halftime. After backup kicker Chip Rhome injured his leg in warmups, Brodus was rushed to the stadium less than an hour before kickoff. He connected on all three of his extra point tries in addition to the field goal. That wasn’t the only unexpected sight on Saturday, either. Dooley gave walk-on running back Jaron Toney 19 carries, which went for a team-best 52 yards. Poole finished with 13 yards on 11 carries. After making his first start a week ago in the Vols’ loss to South Carolina, true freshman Justin Worley completed 23 of his 32 passes for 291 yards, 202 of which came in the first half, and his first career touchdown.

Vols Fall to No. 8 Arkansas, 49-7 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Tennessee’s SEC struggles continued against No. 8 Arkansas. The Razorbacks leveraged big plays to take a commanding 28-point thirdquarter lead and ran away with a 49-7 victory at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Wide receiver Joe Adams and running back Dennis Johnson did most of the damage for Arkansas. Adams came through with the night’s signature play in the second quarter -- and one perhaps emblematic of what went wrong in Tennessee’s third game against a top 10 from the SEC West this season. Leading 7-0, Adams fielded a low punt from Matt Darr, backtracked nearly 15 yards, broke six tackles and outran the rest of UT’s coverage team down the right sideline for a 60-yard touchdown. It was Adams’ third punt return touchdown this season, and the Hogs’ FBSbest fifth special teams touchdown. For Tennessee, though, it was another instance of missed tackles and a missed opportunity to either make or prevent a big play. Arkansas struck again on a 71-yard run by Dennis Johnson, who broke through the middle of the field and ran untouched the final 40 yards to give the Razorbacks a 21-0 lead with 11:25 left in the second quarter. The Vols, who fell to 0-6 in SEC play for the first time in school history and 4-6 overall, answered with their best possession of the game. Neal caught a 50yard pass from Justin Worley to set up an 11-yard touchdown run that made the score 21-7. After stopping Arkansas on its next possession, Tennessee drove 72 yards to the Arkansas 5-yard line. But facing pressure on third down, Worley looked to the end zone -- only to find safety Tramain Thomas in his way. The Hogs scored on their second possession of the second half, taking a 28-7 lead on a 15-yard run by Johnson, who finished with a game-high 97 yards on just 11 carries. The real dagger came after the Vols’ next drive stalled near midfield, and Worley threw incomplete for Arnett on fourth-and-1 from the UT 40-yard line. Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson hit Adams with a 40-yard strike for a touchdown on the very next play, and Tennessee never threatened after that. The Razorbacks outscored Tennessee 28-0 after halftime, extending UT’s uncanny second-half struggles in SEC play.

PLAYERS

KNOXVILLE -- Twice last year, Tennessee celebrated in vain. First at LSU, then in the Music City Bowl against North Carolina, joy turned into gut-punch losses. In Neyland Stadium, Tennessee celebrated in the south end zone, only to have it interrupted for an official review. But only interrupted. Officials eventually ruled that the Vols’ game-winning interception return was good for a touchdown, giving Tennessee a 27-21 victory over Vanderbilt and moving it one step closer to clinching a bowl berth. But for a minute, it looked like the Vols might get caught in another downpour. During the first possession of overtime, UT defensive back Eric Gordon intercepted Jordan Rodgers’ pass, stumbled and continued 90 yards down the far sideline for a touchdown. Officials initially said Gordon fumbled the ball and recovered it with his knee on the ground. In a flash, Tennessee’s players ended their celebration in the southwest corner of the stadium and started clamoring for Dooley to challenge the call. Following the game, Dooley pointed out that rules prohibit a coach from challenging whether or not a runner was down. But because officials didn’t stop the play, it was eligible for an official review. Moments later, the Vols were celebrating again. After jumping out to a 14-7 lead at halftime in Tyler Bray’s return to the field after missing five games with a broken thumb, the Vols’ second-half woes appeared to set in again. On the Vols’ second possession of a scoreless third quarter, Vandy linebacker Archibald Barnes intercepted Bray in the end zone and returned it 100 yards to tie the game at 14-14. Then, after pinning the Vols deep in their own territory, Vanderbilt took a 21-14 when Rodgers found Chris Boyd for a 20-yard touchdown pass with 12:21 remaining. Tennessee answered right back, with a heavy dose of the run -- and the kind of good fortune that hasn’t exactly been a regular occurrence this season. After UT’s drive, which began at its 20-yard line, stalled at the Vandy 5, Michael Palardy came on for a 23-yard field goal attempt. The kick appeared to be blocked, but Vandy’s Sean Richardson was flagged for running into the kicker. So on fourth down, Da’Rick Rogers hauled in a pass from Bray with one hand to tie the game at 21-21 with 6:27 left in regulation. Tennessee’s defense stole the show the rest of the way. After the teams traded punts, Vanderbilt took over with 2:02 left and promptly moved to the UT 40 with a little less than a minute remaining. On second down, Prentiss Waggner intercepted Rodgers and ended any chance of a Vanderbilt win in regulation.

Vols’ Streak Ends at Kentucky, 10-7 LEXINGTON, Ky. -- After 26 years, the nation’s longest winning streak finally came to an end as Tennessee fell 10-7 to Kentucky in Commonwealth Stadium, ending its streak of 26 consecutive victories. Not only did Tennessee’s winning streak -- so much a part of this series that it became known simply as “The Streak” -- come to an end, but the Vols failed to become bowl eligible. Tennessee had one last chance to climb out of the hole on Saturday. Trailing 10-7 with 2:35 remaining, it moved to its 41-yard line but a sack and two incompletions left the Vols facing fourth and 17 from their 34-yard line. Bray’s final pass was intercepted by Taiedo Smith, and the Wildcats ran the remaining 1:27 off the clock to claim their first win in the series since 1984. Kentucky’s senior quarterback Morgan Newton knelt three times to finish the game, and fans streamed onto the field to celebrate. But it was an unlikely quarterback who led the Wildcats to the win. Matt Roark, a reserve receiver, started for the Wildcats and rushed for 124 yards. He completed four of his six passes for 15 yards. Tennessee held the Wildcats to 217 yards of total offense (and just 29 in the fourth quarter), but Kentucky made the most of its opportunities to score. Trailing 3-0, the Vols moved the ball inside the Kentucky 10-yard line after Tyler Bray found Rajion Neal on a 44-yard pass. Two plays later with Neal at quarterback in the Wildcat formation, the snap sailed over his head and Kentucky recovered. That turnover set up Co’Shik Williams’ 6-yard touchdown run with 14:12 remaining. That touchdown came two plays after Roark appeared to fumble at the end of a 26 yard run to the UT 7 on third and 12. Dooley challenged the play, and officials upheld the ruling on the field that Roark was down before the ball came loose. Rajion Neal scored Tennessee’s lone touchdown on a 53-yard pass from Tyler Bray early in the fourth quarter. That play closed the gap to three points, but the Vols offense couldn’t find another big play in the remaining 12:52. Tennessee’s offense struggled in the first half, picking up just 129 yards. Bray, finished 15-of-38 for 215 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions. The Vols reached Kentucky territory twice in the first half, but missed a 47-yard field goal try and turned the ball over on downs at the Kentucky 31. Kentucky made the most of its lone drive deep into Tennessee territory., moving the ball 62 yards to the UT 7 on its opening possession. That drive stalled when Malik Jackson and Willie Bohanan stopped Roark for a loss of 2 yards on third down at the UT 5. Craig McIntosh connected on a 24-yard field goal to give Kentucky a 3-0 lead with 4:46 left in the first quarter.
