Butch Jones said after the game that he wasn’t going to look much at the defensive film of this game.
However, he did say that his team needs to do a better job of tackling.
On the final play of the game, Darrell Taylor fights through two blockers to stop TaQuon Marshall in the backfield, showing off his tackling ability and making the biggest stop of the game.
Like Butch, we're not looking much at defensive film against the triple option. But Darrell Taylor just outworks everyone on the final play. pic.twitter.com/NxFZfirqFu

Taylor had a great night in his first career start. He played so many snaps that there was a lot of good and a lot of bad in his film. But he was consistently in the backfield and had one of the better performances of any of Tennessee’s defenders in this game.
