Vols senior defensive end Corey Miller had a historic night, as the Vols got their first road win since 2010 on Saturday night against Kentucky.
Miller had 4.5 sacks on the night, topping Reggie White’s single-game record of four. The Vols (5-7) put up over 400 yards of offense in a 27-14 victory over the Wildcats (2-10).
The Vols got on the board early, scoring within the first 30 seconds of the game on a 60-yard touchdown run from Rajion Neal.
Neal finished his career with a solid evening, rushing for 134 yards on 20 carries with one touchdown.
Freshman QB Josh Dobbs also had a quality night. He completed 14 of his 23 passes for 199 yards, one interception and his first two passing touchdowns of his career.
Dobbs also carried the ball 7 times for 52 yards, including a impressive 40 yard touchdown run.
Devrin Young led the Vols in receptions with four catches for 66 yards. Jason Croom, who injured his shoulder in the first half, added two catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.
One of Croom’s catches looked like it had been intercepted, but after being juggled by the Kentucky defender the ball fell in Croom’s hands and he walked into the end zone for the score.
The Vols, despite winning by two scores, showed they still have a quite a bit of work to do as they head into 2014.
The QB situation is anything but settled and it will certainly be the main topic of debate this off-season.
