Just like in Week 1, the Vols’ secondary wasn’t really tested in this game. But unlike in Week 1, when they were tested, they didn’t give up nearly as many big plays. Indiana State’s biggest passing play went for 23 yards, and it was more because of a well thrown ball than it was a breakdown in coverage. Indiana State finished just 9-of-19 for 93 yards in the game. Tennessee’s safeties were solid in the run game and pass game both.

  1. It looked like a B performance all around, it seemed you WR/TE and D-line grades were a little low. Fewer drop (maybe 2) and none by the TE’s. WR bailed out average throws by the QB’s (Palmer’s catch on RPO, that should have been a TD catch and both of Johnson and Calloway TD catches) Even George’s drop on GITMO’s second quarter deep attempt was an underthrown ball to a WR who was behind the defender.

    The D-line didn’t rack up many stats but three come to mind, they gave up one TD drive of 44 yards, gave up a long run of 13 yards, and 10 of ISU 13 possessions were 4 plays or less. It doesn’t matter how you are playing a team can create stats like that with average D-line play. I didn’t even mention 3rd down conversions.

    Go big Orange and keep up the good work
