Tennessee Vols Football drops #11 Kentucky 24-7

 

UT Vols Athletics

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsKnoxville, TN – The Tennessee Vols Football team used a balanced offensive attack and stifling defense to take down #11/12/12 Kentucky, 24-7, on Saturday night, November 10th for the Volunteers’ 17th-straight victory over the Wildcats at Neyland Stadium.

“We challenged our players this week that we wanted to have the most rushing yards, and I think we did,” head coach Jeremy Pruitt said. “I thought for the first time, we had a little bit of physicality for the entire game. It wasn’t perfect, but it was definitely very positive. I know those guys are enjoying that in the locker room. I thought defensively, we kept them from creating explosive plays. We kind of made them one dimensional and it’s a lot easier to guard the pass if you make them one dimensional.”

Tennessee Vols Football roll over East Tennessee State, 59-3

 

UT Athletics

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsKnoxville, TNJeremy Pruitt earned his first win as a collegiate head coach in dominant fashion as the Tennessee Vols defeated in-state foe East Tennessee State 59-3 Saturday evening at Neyland Stadium.

“To me, I don’t see this any different than any game I’ve ever coached in,” Pruitt said. “I’m happy we won, and you’ll find out (about me) the more games we win, I’m a little more ticked. There’s a standard we want to play to. Everything wasn’t perfect this week. Everything wasn’t perfect in the last couple of days, and we were trying to get things right. We’re learning from it, and I think it’ll make us a better football team, and it’s going to make us a better football program.”
