Tennessee football: Video highlights from Vols’ 60-14 win vs. South Alabama

Whenever you score 60 points in a game, you’re going to generate a lot of highlights. Such was the case for Tennessee football as they dominated the South Alabama Jaguars Saturday evening. The Vols mostly did it with offense, but their defense stepped up too, holding their opponent to just 14 points, which is impressive given their tempo.

Josh Heupel was able to clinch bowl eligibility his first year as head coach of the program, and now he’ll have a chance to clinch a winning season next week. That was expected after UT beat the Kentucky Wildcats, but anything could have happened.

Well, the Vols made sure nothing would happen with the show they put on Saturday afternoon. They entertained everybody who showed up to watch the game and made sure there wasn’t going to be any scare. Let’s take a look at what led to that show. Here are video highlights form Tennessee football’s dominating win over the Jaguars.

Jaylen Wright 17-yard touchdown run

Cedric Tillman 27-yard touchdown catch from Hendon Hooker

Princeton Fant 24-yard touchdown catch from Hendon Hooker

Velus Jones Jr. 96-yard kickoff return touchdown

Cedric Tillman 43-yard catch sets up Jabari Small touchdown run

Velus Jones Jr. 41-yard catch

Hendon Hooker 6-yard touchdown run

Len’Neth Whitehead 45-yard run then 5-yard touchdown run

A few highlights weren’t able to make it onto this list. One of them was Jabari Small’s touchdown run on the Vols’ opening drive to spot them a 7-0 lead. Another was Trevon Flowers’ 4th and goal sack in the second quarter. Also, Kurott Garland’s sack to generate a safety and the bad snap on a punt to generate a second safety, both in the second half, didn’t make it on here.

However, even without those, it’s clear there were plenty of highlights for UT in this game. The Vols truly did put on a show, and doing so after such a tough loss last week to the Georgia Bulldogs was impressive.

Now, their final major task is trying to replicate this. Tennessee football should dominate the Vanderbilt Commodores next week, but Vandy always puts up a fight. The Vols need to put them away to have a stress-free path to seven wins, something that seemed out of reach at the beginning of the year.
