As the Tennessee tweet says, the Vols ran wild on Missouri last Saturday… early, often, and all-game long.
The Vols’ 458 rushing yards in a game on the road was a Tennessee record and the third-most in program history. Although, the top two spots on that list both belong to the 1951 Vols. Additionally, Tennessee had an incredible 683 yards of offense in total on Saturday. Tennessee took down Missouri by a score of 62-24 to improve to 3-2 on the year.
On Tuesday morning, the Tennessee social media team dropped a new hype video recapping the Vols’ big win at Missouri.
Early and Often.

On Monday, Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel spoke about his observations of the game following the weekend. Similarly, Tennessee offensive coordinator Alex Golesh and defensive coordinator Tim Banks spoke to the media on Tuesday to give their impressions.
“Really pleased with a lot of the effort that our kids played with, in all three phases of the game,” Heupel said on Monday. “The great thing about the video is that you get a chance to come back and have a chance to correct a lot of things too. A lot of positives, but a lot of things that we can be a lot better. Special teams, how we function—coaching staff and everybody—obviously, the kickoff return for a touchdown. (We) had an opportunity to fit that a lot better than we did and make the play that doesn’t change the momentum in the football game. Defensively, ton of positives. The way we were able to stop the run, but there are some simple things that we can do in alignment, assignment to get off the field quicker than we did. Offensively, although we were efficient in the run game, there’s still opportunities for us to be a whole lot better and some things in the pass game that we can clean up as well. Excited that we got the result that we did.”
Tennessee will be back on the field this Saturday afternoon when they return to Neyland Stadium. After their win on the road against Missouri, Tennessee will take on South Carolina in another important SEC East matchup next. ESPN2 will have the broadcast at noon ET.
