BOUNCING BACK:

Tennessee seeks to bounce back after dropping a 41-34 thriller to Pitt in the Johnny Majors Classic last Saturday in Neyland Stadium. Despite a rash of injuries that saw its starting quarterback (Joe Milton III) depart to injury in the second quarter, its top two running backs out (Tiyon Evans, Jabari Small) and it starting center out (Cooper Mays), the Vols nearly rallied from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter. RS senior quarterback and Virginia Tech transfer Hendon Hooker came off the bench to complete 15-of-21 passes for 188 yards and two scores, while rushing nine times for 49 yards. He led Tennessee to its final 21 points, including a 44-yard catch-and-run to Jimmy Calloway in the second quarter. The Vols finished with 374 yards of total offense and notched 10 tackles for loss defensively.
