Tennessee Vols beat South Alabama 31-24 Saturday at Neyland Stadium

 

Tennessee Vols - UT Vols - University of Tennessee VolunteersKnoxville, TN - The Tennessee Vols held on to defeat South Alabama at Neyland Stadium, after enjoying a comfortable lead for the first half of the game, 31-24.

Head coach Butch Jones said he’ll take the win, but his Vols have work to do.

“We’re going to go back to work tomorrow and work to get better. As we continue to move forward, obviously we can’t make mistakes. I wanted a clean game and it was far from that. It’s been a grind for these kids. I think that’s what people don’t realize, it’s been a grind for these young men. Back to back opponents on the road, and then coming in here. They gutted it out. We take a lot from this. We have to learn from it and move forward.”

APSU Football receiver Darryl Clack ready to emerge from shadows
