7 catches, 174 yards, 2 TDs
Why not load up the stats sheet once again? A week after arguably the greatest performance in history by a Tennessee football receiver, Jalin Hyatt delivered an encore. Before moving on, though, let’s give one more shoutout since we’re naming Hyatt and Keyton. Squirrel White did have five catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.
However, White’s score and most of his damage came after the game was well in hand. Like Keyton, Hyatt came out of the gate making plays. On the first drive, he was on the receiving end of a 44-yard completion to keep the drive alive on 3rd and 3.
Hyatt then split two defenders after a catch for a 22-yard touchdown grab, showing that he’s not just a speedy guy. Then came the trick play to Princeton Fant. Who else would be open but Hyatt on that play? Although he bobbled the catch initially, he pulled it in for a 66-yard touchdown.
It’s the third straight game for Hyatt scoring multiple touchdowns and obviously the second straight of him going over 100, actually over 170 yards. He actually had more catches this game than last week against Alabama, and he wasn’t too far off on matching the yards despite only playing a half.
