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.”
