Coaching Notes

Head Coach Derek Dooley The Dooley Era Begins

Derek Dooley may own a rival’s pedigree, but to Tennessee fans he felt just like one of their own when the Vols introduced him as the school’s 22nd head coach in January. Dooley, 42, came to UT after three seasons as head coach at Louisiana Tech, where he also served as athletics director since March 2008. He was the only athletics director serving as head football coach on the FBS level. Dooley is the youngest son of Georgia legend Vince Dooley, who coached the Bulldogs for 25 seasons and claimed six league crowns and the 1980 national title. Dooley never accepted the predetermined path to success. He played his college football at Virginia, turning down scholarship offers elsewhere to walk on and later earn his own scholarship from Cavaliers head coach George Welsh. Then after a successful start to the legal profession, Dooley switched gears and returned to his love of football. Four short years later, he latched onto the staff of Nick Saban at LSU and moved into the fast lane of the SEC. After five successful seasons that included the 2003 national title, Dooley moved with Saban to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. Dooley was named to his first head coaching position by Louisiana Tech in December 2006, and immediately began laying the foundation for future success. Included in his 17-20 overall record was an 8-5 mark in 2008 highlighted by the school’s first postseason victory in 30 years at the Independence Bowl. Tech finished second in the WAC that season and played in a bowl game for only the third time since joining the major college ranks in 1989. The Louisiana Sports Writers’ Association named him 2008 Coach of the Year. Dooley is married to Dr. Allison Jeffers Dooley, an OB/GYN and Fort Worth, Texas, native. They have two sons, John Taylor and Pey-

ton, and a daughter, Julianna. Allison is active in fundraising for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research.

Head Coaching Debuts

Derek Dooley is Tennessee’s 22nd head coach and on Sept. 4 became the 18th to win his first game as Vols skipper. Overall, Tennessee head coaches are 18-4 all-time in their first games. Gen. Robert R. Neyland coached the Vols during three separate tenures and thus had two additional “first” games. He won all three contests, improving the total number to 20-4.

Coaching Prowess

Head coach Derek Dooley’s staff at Tennessee has a proven track record-eight of his assistants have coaching experience in one of the BCS conferences, five have coached in the NFL and three have experienced the formiddable SEC. Baggett, Chaney, Hiestand, Smith and Wylie spent a combined 24 years coaching in the NFL with eight different teams-- the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Houston Oilers, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets and St. Louis Rams. UT’s assistant coaching staff has a combined 66 years of coaching experience in all six BCS automatic qualifying conferences. The Vols’ assistant coaches have coached in the bowl games that now comprise the BCS a total of 10 times and boast coaching experience in 59 total bowl games-- including the Super Bowl.

Noting the Staff Chaney, Thompson Return

Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and linebackers coach Lance Thompson are in their second years in Knoxville. Both joined Tennessee’s staff in 2009 and were retained by first-year head coach Derek Dooley. Chaney, arrived on The Hill after three seasons in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams. He was most notably the mastermind of a stellar Purdue offense from 19972005, during which time the Boilermakers ranked inside the top 10 nationally in total offense six times. Super Bowl XLIV winning quarterback Drew Brees played for Chaney during his tenure in West Lafeyette, and the pair led Purdue to the Big Ten Championship and a Rose Bowl berth in 2000. Thompson came to Rocky Top via Tuscaloosa, where he served on Nick Saban’s staff from 200708. His coaching resume is overflowing--Thompson has been a member of two national championships staffs, has a pair of SEC titles, two ACC championships and a Conference USA divisonal winner.

Smith Comes Home

Rounding out Derek Dooley’s staff was former Tennessee standout Chuck Smith. The Los Angeles native coaches the Vols’ defensive line. Best known for his work with some of the biggest names in pro football, Smith spent last season with the New York Jets No. 1 ranked pass defense. Over the past five seasons, Smith has coached and mentored nearly 60 NFL players, including Albert Haynesworth, Robert Ayers and Shaun Ellis-- all three former Vols. He also worked with Michael Johnson, Osi Umenyiora, Derek Morgan and Bart Scott.

During his career in the NFL, Smith recorded 58.5 sacks in nine seasons and served as a captain during the Atlanta Falcons’ lone Super Bowl appearance after the 1998 season. He was later selected the “Best Defensive Lineman in Team History,” by Falcons’ fans. On The Hill, Smith started at right end for two seasons. He helped the Big Orange to a win in the 1990 Sugar Bowl and earned All-SEC honors in 1991.

Wilcox on a Rising Star

According to a recent Sports Illustrated article, Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox is one of college football’s best assistant coaches. The article, compiled by Andy Staples and Stewart Mandel, predicts Wilcox’s career is on the rise, citing the 49-4 record Boise State amassed during his four year tenure with the Broncos.

The General The Proverbial, Perpetual Yardstick

One of the greatest coaches in the history of the game of football, Gen. Robert Reese Neyland is still, and will most likely always be, the yardstick by which all Tennessee football coaches are measured. For 21 years, he led the Big Orange to win after win and championship after championship. His 173 wins, seven conference titles and four national championships set the bar at one of the nation’s finest football institutions. According to UT legend Gus Manning, no one summed up Neyland and his coaching ability better than Wallace Wade: “He could take his and beat yours or take yours and beat his.” -- Wallace Wade, Alabama and Duke head coach and Neyland rival.

Gen. Neyland’s Maxims of Football

1. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win. 2. Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way -- SCORE. 3. If at first the game or the breaks go against you, don’t let up -- put on more steam. 4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game. 5. Ball, oskie, cover, block, cut and slice, pursue and gang tackle -- for this is the WINNING EDGE. 6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made. 7. Carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for 60 minutes. UTSports.com | 3

The Vols have 10 takeaways against only six giveaways.  The Vols are third in the SEC and 27th nationally in pass efficiency defense, with a rating of 109.64.  LSU’s touchdown on the game’s opening play Saturday was the first against Tennessee on an opening drive this season.  The Vols have scored two defensive TD’s this season, both on interception returns by Prentiss Waggner. This equals the team total for the entire 2009 season (interception returns by Chris Walker and Wes Brown).  Ten freshmen have seen time on defense for Tennessee through four games: Eric Gordon, Brent Brewer, Jerod Askew, John Propst, Jacques Smith, Corey Miller, Joseph Ayres, Dontavis Sapp, Raiques Crump and Arthur Jeffery.  Opponents were 7x7 inside the red zone in the first three games (5 TD, 2 FG), but UT has stiffened to allow only 5 of 8 scores over the last two games against UAB and LSU.

Defensive Line

Sykes and Bohannon have appeared in four games apiece.

Linebackers

 Nick Reveiz (Sr., Farragut) leads the SEC and is tied for 21st nationally with 50 tackles. Since recording just one tackle in the opener against UT Martin, Reveiz had turned in games of 10, 14, 14, and 11 stops. The last Vol with 10-plus tackles in four consecutive games was Jerod Mayo in each of the last four games of 2007. Reveiz is tied for the team lead with four tackles for loss and gathered his first career interception Saturday at LSU.  LaMarcus Thompson (Sr., Lithonia, Ga.) had a career-high nine tackles at LSU and is third on the team with 28 stops.

Secondary

 Prentiss Waggner (Soph., Clinton, La.) leads the team with two interceptions, both of which he has returned for TDs to tie the school record (accomplished seven times by six players, most recently by Eric Berry in 2008). Waggner scored on a 9-yard return vs. UAB and a 54-yard return vs. UT Martin. He is second on the team with 31 tackles and has three additional pass breakups to lead the Vols with five passes defensed. Waggner’s eight tackles at LSU were a career high.  Janzen Jackson (Soph., Lake Charles, La.), like Waggner, made a sparkling return to his native Louisiana. Jackson’s seven tackles weren’t a career high, but they included three on special teams to go with his second career interception, another pass breakup and a quarterback hurry. He is fourth on the team with 26 tackles and had a career-high nine stops vs. Florida. Despite his sophomore status, Jackson’s 14 career starts rank fourth on the current Vols’ defense.  Converted receiver Marsalis Teague (Soph., Paris) has started the last four games at cornerback and leads the team with six pass breakups (6th in SEC). Three of those came vs. UAB and including a critical play in overtime in the corner of the end zone.Teague had a career-high eight tackles at LSU and owns 24 stops for the year. He started five games at receiver in 2009 before making the move to begin fall camp.  Art Evans (Jr., Lakeland, Fla.) returned from a missed game (knee injury) vs. UAB to register a career-high eight tackles at LSU. Evans owns 16 career starts, tied for second on the defensive unit.  Freshman Eric Gordon (Nashville) has two starts this season at cornerback but has played extensively, leading all defensive backs with 1.5 tackles for loss. He has 15 tackles and one pass breakup. Gordon also has emerged as a special teams return threat. Saturday at LSU, Gordon turned in a pair of season-longs for the Vols with a 34-yard kickoff return and 21-yard punt return.  Others seeing time in the secondary in 2010 include Brent Brewer (Fr., Tyrone, Ga.). Brewer is not your typical freshman. He signed a pro baseball contract in 2006 out of high school with the Milwaukee Brewers, turning his back on a football career at Florida State. The second-round draft pick spent five years as a shortstop in the pro ranks. Joining Brewer have been senior Tyler Wolf (Cookeville), with eight tackles and two pass breakups, Anthony Anderson (Jr., Knoxville), tied for second on the team with four special teams tackles, and true freshman Dontavis Sapp (Valdosta, Ga.).

Kickers

 Daniel Lincoln (Sr., Ocala, Fla.) is a four-year starter

Inside the Box A pair of defensive staff members are in the coaches’ booth during games. Defensive backs coach Terry Joseph and graduate assistant Peter Sirmon look down on the action at home from the Tom Elam Press Box. Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and graduate assistant Chino Fontenette direct the Vols’ offense from upstairs. at the position who is off to an excellent start to the 2010 season. Although he missed Saturday’s game at LSU with a leg injury, Lincoln remains a perfect 7-for-7 on field goal attempts this season, one short of his Tennessee record of eight consecutive made field goals to start a season, accomplished during his All-American campaign in 2007. Lincoln is 10-for-11 on PAT’s and tied his career long with a 49-yard field goal vs. Florida. With 48 career field goals, Lincoln needs four more to tie John Becksvoort for fifth place on the all-time Vols leaderboard.  Tennessee Career Scoring Leaders Player (Years) Points Jeff Hall (1995-98) 371 James Wilhoit (2003-06) 325 John Becksvoort (1991-94) 317 Fuad Reveiz (1981-84) 314 Alex Walls (1999-2002) 292 Gene McIver (1928-31) 276 Daniel Lincoln (2007-10) 262  True freshman Michael Palardy (Coral Springs, Fla.) earned his stripes at LSU, punting for 51 yards on his first collegiate attempt and filling in for the injured Daniel Lincoln on place-kicks. Palardy converted both PATs and just missed on a 45-yard field goal attempt. He has kicked off for the Vols in three games.  Chad Cunningham (Sr., Dawsonville, Ga.) had a season-best 47.5-yard average on four punts at LSU, with two of 50-plus yards and two downed inside the 20-yard line. His 42.8-yard season average ranks fourth in the SEC and 35th nationally. He punted a seasonhigh nine times (42.1 avg.) vs. UAB and tied his season long with a 54-yard punt (equaled vs. Oregon). Cunningham already has eight punts downed inside the 20-yard line this season, two-thirds of the way to his season-best total of 12 set last year. His 42-yard career average would rank 7th on the Tennessee career list. UTSports.com | 9

SEC Instant Replay 2010 The Coaches’ Challenge

The head coach may challenge the ruling of any reviewable play. He retains a challenge if his initial challenge is successful and thus results in a reversal by the replay official. The head coach will then have a single challenge that he may use anytime during the game if his team has not used all its timeouts. Thus a team may have a total of two challenges in the game, but only if the first results in a reversal of the on-field ruling.

The Source

All reviewable video comes direct from either the television network broadcasting the game or other TV production facilities that meet established conference standards. The SEC has used instant replay since 2005.

The Plays

 Reviewable 1. Plays governed by Sideline, Goal Line, End Zone, and End Line: a. Scoring Plays, including the ball in possession of a runner breaking the plane of the goal line b. Runner/receiver in or out of bounds c. Recovery of loose ball in and out of bounds 2. Passing Plays: a. Pass ruled complete/ incomplete/ intercepted in the field of play and end zones b. Touching of a forward pass by a player or an official c. Illegal forward pass or illegal handing off beyond the line of scrimmage d. Illegal forward pass or illegal handing off after change of possession e. Forward or backward pass thrown from behind the line of scrimmage f. Quarterback (Passer) starts arm forward, ball comes loss and play is ruled incomplete (if ball is quickly recovered) g. Quarterback (Passer) throws incomplete swing pass that is close to being forward or backward, and pass is ruled forward (if ball is quickly recovered) 3. Miscellaneous: a. Runner ruled not down. b. Runner ruled down (when ball carrier is judged down by rule and the ball is fumbled, play may be reviewed if recovery of ball occurs in the im mediate action following fumble and is prior to any official signaling ball is dead. Also reviewable when runner is ruled out of bounds near goal line.) c. Forward progress with respect to first down d. Touching of a kick e. Number of players on field f. Clock adjustments (in conjunction with reviewed plays) g. Fourth-down/try fumble plays h. Field Goal Attempts (only when ball is ruled below or above the crossbar, inside or outside the uprights when it is lower than the top of the uprights.)

i. The game clock expires at the end of a half. If at the end of the game, the time may be restored to the clock only if the score is tied or the team that would next snap the ball trails by eight points or fewer.

 Not Reviewable 1. Fighting participants 2. Off-sides/Encroachment 3. Pass interference 4. Roughing passer/kicker 5. Illegal formations 6. Taunting/Other unsportsmanlike conduct 7. Face mask 8. Taunting 9. Illegal blocks 10. Holding 11. Personal fouls

The Process

Each SEC football stadium has a secured replay booth equipped with the HD Instant Replay system provided by XOS Digital. Three individuals work in the booth for the duration of the game: 1. Replay Official, 2. Communicator, 3. Technician. The Replay Official and the Communicator are selected and assigned by the Conference Office. A live HD video feed is sent directly to the replay booth from the TV truck. The Technician watches the feed on an input monitor while recording it into the XOS Digital Replay System. The Technician also marks the beginning of each play while the Communicator marks all incoming replays. Each play and subsequent replay then appears on a touch screen in front of the Replay Technician. As the Technician and the Communicator mark the incoming video, each view will appear as a small picture on the computer touch screen. At any time, the Replay Technician can touch the thumbnail and immediately send that play or replay to the Replay Official. With the Communicator’s assistance, the Replay Official can quickly jump between replays while playing back the video. All replay video navigation is done via a jog shuttle remote controlled by the Replay Official. All video is viewed on an HD monitor that sits in front of the Replay Official. The touch screen is only used to select the replays and to log specific play data in the event a call is overturned. While all plays are reviewed between the whistle and the beginning of the next play, the Replay Official can stop play on the field by using a pager system. Five onfield officials wear pagers. If play is stopped the Referee announces on the stadium PA microphone that play has been stopped so the previous play can be reviewed. The Referee then proceeds to the sideline headset, which provides direct communication to the Replay Official in the booth. Once the play has been reviewed, the Replay Official notifies the Referee, who then announces the decision on the stadium PA system. UTSports.com | 10


Notes on Neyland Stadium

UT Wins at Neyland

The Best Just Got Better

The Home of the Vols just got a makeover, transforming one of college football’s meccas into an aesthetic masterpiece. The concrete walls that used to hold up the west side of Neyland Stadium were replaced with brick. Below the press box, six new panels display some of the finest to ever don the Orange and White-- Al Wilson, Gen. Robert R. Neyland, Reggie White, Peyton Manning, Johnny Majors and Doug Atkins. Most noticeable from the outside are the approximately 700,000 bricks laid since December that totally transformed the look of the stadium’s north and west sides. Standing in the middle of that transformation is the majestic Gate 21 plaza area. “Gate 21 is the focal point of the stadium,” said David Elliott, assistant athletics director for event management. “It’s our marquee entrance. Gate 21 typically has brought in 30,000 to 35,000 people on a game-bygame basis. It is a stunning, stunning entrance.” Six lofty archways dominate the entrance, which doubles during the work week as a key campus transportation hub. No doubt the traffic on game days is just as hectic. Adjacent to the Gate 21 plaza is another change, the new amphitheater at the corner of Phillip Fulmer Way and Andy Holt Avenue. The Vol Network’s Kickoff Call-In Show takes place there, sporting spiffy new digs after spending years on a make-shift platform in front of a worn down hillside. Just inside Gate 21, the Tennessee Official Team Shop is open for business six days a week under management of the UT Bookstore. Four other souvenir locations are located throughout the stadium, including one in an exclusive new seating area.

Tennessee Terrace

The Tennessee Terrace now occupies the west upper deck, with 1,800 individual chair-back seats and a climate-controlled concourse featuring new restroom and concession areas. All of the stadium’s high-end concessions are available to Tennessee Terrace patrons, and those individuals also have the added bonus of sitting on the home sideline after the Vols switched back to the west for the first time since 1992. Plans call for stadium renovations to take a break over the next two years and resume in December 2012. That should allow for a more normal maintenance schedule, including structural painting projects on the stadium’s exterior that are first in line for

Clyde Fuson (62), Rudy Klarer (49), Bill Nowling (32) and Willis Tucker (61) were all Vols who made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation during WWII.  Built: 1921 as Shields-Watkins Field

 Dedicated: Oct. 20, 1962, as Neyland Stadium

With an all-time record of 430-108-17 (.790), the Home of the Vols is the nation’s second winningest college football venue. Only Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium has more wins (434), but is eight years older than Neyland Stadium.

 Surface: Natural grass

Tennessee’s fans have faithfully poured into Neyland Stadium for nearly nine decades. Thanks to the support of a steady fan base, the Vols have led the SEC in attendance each of the past 36 seasons. Additionally, The Home of the Vols has ranked among the top five nationally for 34 years.

Contractor for this portion of the project was Blaine Construction. “We’re very proud of all the construction we have had in the stadium,” Elliott said. “The design team, the contractor and everybody have been a pleasure to work with and they have done a fantastic job putting it together and on time, so we can be ready to play football this first weekend.

Unveiling of the Neyland Statue

Perhaps the most anticipated improvement to the Home of the Vols will not be unveiled until the Nov. 13 homecoming date with Mississippi. As Vols young and old return to The Hill to see the Big Orange take on the Rebels, they will see a twice-life-size statue of the stadium’s namesake, Gen. Robert R. Neyland. The statue will meet its permanent resting place between gates 16 and 17.

Sideline Change for 2010 Season

When Tennessee kicked off the 2010 season on Sept. 4 against UT Martin, the Vols did so on a new sideline. The Vols called the west sideline home until 1994, when the SEC began prohibiting student seating directly behind a visiting team bench. In order to meet SEC guidelines, the athletics department approached the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs in December to discuss making modest adjustments to student seating assignments. UT Athletics in conjunction with Student Affairs and SGA chose to add additional lower level student seating in sections J and K to offset the seat adjustments needed in section D to give students a more cohesive student section.

When at Neyland Stadium...

The Vols return home Oct. 23 to play current No. 1-ranked Alabama. Tennessee looks to even the alltime series record in Knoxville, which the Crimson Tide lead 21-20-1. UT has won five of the last seven games played at Neyland Stadium. UTSports.com | 11

KNOXVILLE - Tauren Poole had touchdown runs of 24 yards and 14 yards as Tennessee beat UT Martin 50-0 on Saturday night for Derek Dooley’s first victory as the Volunteers’ coach. It was Tennessee’s first shutout since a 48-0 win over Vanderbilt in 2003 and first time facing an FCS opponent since a win over The Citadel in 1983. Tauren Poole had been waiting all year to prove he’d been unfairly stuck behind Bryce Brown and David Oku on the Vols’ depth chart last season. He delivered, darting through holes, running around coverage and picking up 110 yards on 17 carries before sitting out the entire fourth quarter. Oku had his share of carries too and found some large holes for a 44-yard touchdown run with 5:00 left in the first quarter to give the Vols a 10-0 lead in the season opener for both teams. Denarius Moore ran 58 yards for a touchdown and caught a 42-yard scoring pass from Matt Simms. Moore finished with 66 yards on four catches, and Gerald Jones had 86 yards on six catches before injuring his left hand. Tennessee scored nearly every way it could. Austin Johnson tackled D.J. McNeil in the end zone for a safety. Prentiss Waggner intercepted Derek Carr and ran 54 yards for a touchdown. Daniel Lincoln kicked field goals of 21 and 35 yards.

KNOXVILLE - LaMichael James ran for 134 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown, in his first game back after a one-game suspension and No. 7 Oregon scored 45 consecutive points to beat Tennessee 48-13 on Saturday night. James had only 27 yards at halftime after being targeted by the Volunteers’ defense for the entire first half. He started picking up momentum after the break, rushing for 25 yards on five carries in the Oregon’s first second-half drive. He broke several tackles on the 72-yard touchdown run on the first play of the subsequent drive for the Ducks (2-0). Tennessee (1-1) went up 13-3 in the first half after an hour-long delay for lightning but fell apart after James’ long run. A pass by Matt Simms intended for Zach Rogers was intercepted by Cliff Harris, who returned it 76-yards for another score to give Oregon a 27-13 lead with 6:27 left in the third quarter. The Vols got a 48-yard field goal from Daniel Lincoln on their first drive and immediately got the ball back when Barner fumbled the following kickoff after a 39-yard return. Da’Rick Rogers had a 21-yard run that set up a 35-yard field goal by Lincoln with 8:53 left in the first quarter.

KNOXVILLE - The 10th-ranked Florida Gators beat the Tennessee Volunteers 31-17 on Saturday for their sixth consecutive win in the 40-game series between the Southeastern Conference rivals. It’s the first time Florida has won three consecutive in Knoxville after having chances to do so in 1990, 1998 and 2004. Tennessee (1-2, 0-1) tied the game at 10 with a 49-yard touchdown pass from Matt Simms to Denarius Moore with 8:59 in the third quarter. Simms completed 19 of 31 for two touchdowns and a pair of turnovers. Florida appeared stopped on the next drive until Meyer called for a fake punt on fourthand-6. Omarius Hines ran 36 yards to keep the drive alive, and John Brantley eventually connected with Frankie Hammond on a 7-yard touchdown pass. The Vols seemed on the verge of a meltdown when Simms appeared to be sacked in the end zone for a safety, but an official review ruled him down on the 1. Tennessee punted but scored on the next possession with a 35-yard touchdown pass from Simms to Justin Hunter on fourthand-6 to cut Florida’s lead to 24-17 with a 11:24 left. Tennessee scored first for the first time against Florida since 2001 when Daniel Lincoln kicked a late first-quarter, 49-yard field goal, tying his career high.

Oct. 2 | Tiger Stadium | Baton Rouge, La. | Attendance: 92,932

BATON ROUGE, La. - The Tigers remained unbeaten with a 16-14 victory on Saturday after a Volunteers penalty for too many players on the field rescued LSU from a botched final play. LSU (5-0, 3-0 SEC) was confused on third-and-goal from the 1 and allowed the clock to run nearly to zero before a mishandled snap seemingly ended the game and sent Tennessee players streaming onto the field in jubilation. The celebration was cut short when officials ruled the Volunteers (2-3, 0-2) had 13 defensive players on the field when the ball was snapped. Stevan Ridley then bulled into the end zone from a yard out for the wild win. Ridley finished with 123 yards rushing. Jordan Jefferson had an 83-yard TD run on LSU’s first offensive play, but his game went downhill after that. Miles decided on a two-quarterback system with Jefferson and backup Jarrett Lee getting meaningful snaps. Lee passed for 185 yards and led most of the 16-play, 69-yard game-winning drive, completing critical passes to Terrence Toliver on third-and-13 and fourth-and-14. Despite being a two-touchdown underdog, Tennessee was in the game the whole way. Tauren Poole’s 1-yard dive over the pile helped the Vols to a 7-7 tie at halftime. Matt Simms’ 3-yard touchdown run put the Vols in the lead with 11:34 left in the fourth quarter. The first interception of LaMarcus Thompson’s career put Tennessee in position to bury the Tigers in a hole with another score, but the Tigers’defense got a critical stop on fourth-and-1 at the LSU 31. LSU outgained Tennessee 434 yards to 217, but the Tigers turned the ball over four times on three interceptions -- two by Jefferson -- and a fumble.
