Tennessee tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson scored Tennessee’s third touchdown of the game during their 24-7 upset win over No. 11 Kentucky on Saturday. And he took to Twitter after the game to explain his touchdown celebration in the end zone.
Wood-Anderson caught a two-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Guarantano with 7:49 left in the third quarter to put the Vols ahead 24-0 over the Wildcats. As part of his celebration, he acted as if he was taking a jump shot. And as he explained on Twitter after the game, the JUCO transfer tight end did that to throw some shade at Kentucky fans.

The 6-foot-4, 257-pound tight end finished the game with four receptions for 18 yards and that touchdown. The score was his second of the season and his first since he hauled in a one-yard touchdown against West Virginia in Tennessee’s season opener.
Wood-Anderson enjoyed a breakout game against Charlotte last week, pulling down three receptions for 53 yards. He now has 14 catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
The Vols improved to 5-5 on the season and 2-4 in SEC play after their 24-7 win over the Wildcats. Tennessee will take on Missouri in Neyland Stadium at 3:30 Eastern next Saturday.
