Western Kentucky @ Tennessee Volunteers: Live Game Thread


Butch Jones and the Tennessee Volunteers are looking for their second win of the season, as Bobby Petrino and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers come to Neyland Stadium this afternoon.

Western Kentucky, who took down the Kentucky Wildcats last week, enters this game as a 13 point underdog. It’ll be a tough test for the Vols, as they prepare to travel to Eugene, OR next week to take on the Oregon Ducks.

    Good afternoon from Neyland Stadium! Jacques Smith not in uniform today. Curt Maggitt is in uniform and it looks like he’ll play.

  • zach ragan

    17 minutes until game time and the crowd looks a little less than last week against Austin Peay.

  • zach ragan

    Students leaving a lot to be desired as far as attendance goes today. Wouldn’t be surprised to hear Butch call that out later.

  • zach ragan

    Vols should be glad they held WKU to a FG there. Very glad

  • zach ragan

    Vols had to punt, not a good sign early. Worley a little off target so far.

  • Tom Harvey

    Nice break there for the Vols as Justin Coleman intercepts a pass off the hands of WKU WR and takes it to the checkerboards.

  • Tom Harvey

    Cam Sutton with another pick 6 for the Vols!

  • zach ragan

    And another HUGE break, Cam Sutton

  • zach ragan

    Sutton is going to be a nice player for the Vols

  • zach ragan

    Sutton timed that route perfectly.

  • zach ragan

    Sapp recovers the fumble

  • zach ragan

    FG for Palardy, 17-3 Vols, offense kind of stalled after the completion to North

  • Tom Harvey

    Disappointing possession for the Vols results in a Palardy FG.

  • Tom Harvey

    Another turnover. Max Arnold recovers a fumble and returns it to the 12.

  • Tom Harvey

    I believe that’s 4 turnovers on 4 consecutive plays

  • Tom Harvey

    As well as this game has started for the Vols, how Worley has looked is a little worrying

  • Tom Harvey

    Make that 5 turnovers on 5 straight plays. Brewer intercepts a pass at the 22

  • zach ragan

    Well this game is getting out of hand, we still may not see much of the offense.

  • zach ragan

    Marlin Lane punches it in. Making it look easy now.

  • Tom Harvey

    31-3 with 14:38 left in the 2nd qtr. The score looks dominating. Turnovers really help.

  • zach ragan

    Jacob Carter was in as a punt returner

  • zach ragan

    So early on, Vincent Dallas returning kicks and Carter punts, with Devrin Young out.

  • Geraldine Adkins

    Were hot today. wtg Vols. Keep It Up.

    • zach ragan

      This game got out of hand quickly for WKU

      • Geraldine Adkins

        Better 4 us . Loving it.

  • Tom Harvey

    Worley has been a mess today.

    • zach ragan

      Offense has looked very out of sync with him at the helm.

  • Tom Harvey

    Covering the RB out of the backfield has been a problem for the defense today.

  • zach ragan

    31-10 Vols after the WKU score, nice drive from the Hilltoppers

  • Tom Harvey

    Worley’s best throw of the day is dropped by Jason Croom on a deep pass.

    • zach ragan

      followed by a total breakdown in coverage by the secondary

  • Tom Harvey

    Another INT as Brian Randolph picks it off in the endzone.

    • zach ragan

      Huge for Vols, WKU was on verge or scoring

  • Tom Harvey

    The Vols are allowing WKU to remain in this game.

    • zach ragan

      That shot down field, cost them 7 points

  • Tom Harvey

    The Vols are up 31-17 at halftime, but have been severely outplayed.

  • Tom Harvey

    84 yards of offense isn’t going to cut it.

  • zach ragan

    Vols looked efficient on opening drive of 3rd qtr

    • Tom Harvey

      need a defensive stop now

  • zach ragan

    Vols have got to get stops on third down, 3rd and 14 should not be picked up that easy!

  • Tom Harvey

    Vols defense getting ripped up like it was 2012 today

    • zach ragan

      The big difference is at least they’re making an effort.

  • Tom Harvey

    Worley has looked much sharper so far in the 2nd half

    • zach ragan

      Yep, gotta remember he’s still inexperienced too.

  • Tom Harvey

    I really like what I have seen from Josh Smith. Big and physical WR with good hands

  • zach ragan

    Another INT for the Vols

    • Tom Harvey

      Vols have been really fortunate with the turnovers today.

  • Tom Harvey

    More good news for Vol fans…Florida is losing 21-9 with 3:29 left in the 4th.

    • Tom Harvey
