"Really proud of our players", a jubilant Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said after the game.

Heading into his fifth season as Tennessee's coach, Jones desperately needs a breakout performance to show he's got the Volunteers on the right track.

Tennessee blocked a 36-yard field goal attempt as time expired in regulation to force overtime.

Bituli, a sophomore from Antioch, Tennessee, made an astounding 23 tackles, 11 of them solo stops.

Tennessee's Marquez Callaway: The Warner Robins product was targeted four times and caught all four for 115 yards and two touchdowns.

He set game records for most points (30), touchdowns, most rushing touchdowns, most yardage and most carries.

"I think this football team showed our grit". "So we didn't make the play, they did".

Wenger: Arsenal couldn't afford 'next Pele' Mbappe
Speaking to French TV station Telefoot , Wenger said that he "hesitated about signing a new contract for personal reasons". The North Londoners were smashed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday, in one of the worst displays of Wenger's reign.

The Yellow Jackets went on to score their third rushing touchdown of the game in the second half after an 80-yard drive, pushing their advantage to 21-7.

Jones and his new-look coaching staff will have to do their best work to get this young team to contend in the SEC East and live up to top 25 expectations.

The Vols finished with 369 yards of total offense. "We didn't deserve to win".

Following his senior year at Tennessee, Dodd was immediately hired as an assistant at Georgia Tech by William Alexander on December 28, 1930. Soon afterward, Dormady countered by capping Tennessee's 70-yard march to the end zone with a 10-yard pass to Callaway.

Before long, it was 28-21 after Dormady completed a 50-yard touchdown pass to Callaway.

Tennessee (1-0) was a mess on offense for most of the night. This game and the one on Sunday night between the Texas A&M Aggies and the UCLA Bruins definitely had us on the edge of our seats. They played keep away, while the Vols managed only 94 yards with five first downs in the first two quarters. The Vols will be able to learn a lot from the film of this game and somehow, some way they will get to learn it coming off a win. Among other things, this likely means more playing time for A-back Nathan Cottrell, who would normally be the No. 4 A-back but will now be a part of the rotation of A-backs shuttling in plays from the sideline. Kickoff is at 4 p.m.

Down in Atlanta at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday, September 9, the Jacksonville State Gamecocks and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will meet up in Week 2 college football action.

The Gamecocks finished 10-2 overall last season, going 7-0 in OVC play. His offense spent the evening manhandling the Volunteers along the way to 655 yards, including an outrageous 535 on the ground. Georgia Tech believes their defensive line strength is their ability to get pressure off the edge.
