    Tennessee HC Josh Heupel at his press conference following the Vols’ win over Tennessee Tech.

    The Tennessee Volunteers cruised to victory on Saturday afternoon in Neyland Stadium. The Vols took down Tennessee Tech in Neyland Stadium by a score of 56-0. The offense played well, but it was the defense that really shined. Not only did the defense hold the opposing offense out of the endzone for four quarters, but they also added in a touchdown and four turnovers.

    Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel was complementary of the team in his postgame press conference. He spoke about what he liked from his defensive units, including specific plays from Jaylen McCollough and Solon Page III.

    In addition, Heupel also spoke about the offense. Heupel explained some of the concepts they worked on in practice, and how he saw them translate those onto the field. Heupel also spoke about Hendon Hooker’s starting job at quarterback but was vague in any forecasts for next week.

    After Tennessee’s win on Saturday, some of the Vols’ key players also spoke to the media after the game.
