Going into this year there were a lot of questions about the Tennessee wide receivers and some of those questions were answered as a trio of wide receivers combined for 241 yards and two touchdowns. Austin Rogers, Josh Briscoe, and Lucas Taylor each had breakour games. Austin Rogers caught seven passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. Lucas Taylor had five catches for 118 yards. Josh Briscoe had a touchdown catch. With the receivers stepping up, it help Erik Ainge also to have a good night by throwing 23 of 36 for 276 yards. Arian Foster also had a good game as he ran for 125 yards on 23 carries. and two touchdowns.

It was a game that was tight in the first half and also saw Tennessee trail most of the first half. One thing that help Tennessee was three lost fumbles that really helped Tennessee. 

One thing that has me worried is our defense. The defense looked real bad in the first half. They allowed Jeremy Young (Southern Miss QB) a career high of 254 yards passing. That is going to have to stop or it could be a long season. The defense did play better in the second half and the rush defense was pretty good.
