The 2023 Tennessee football season is off to a hot start following the 12th-ranked Vols’ 49-13 victory over Virginia in Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.
The Vols racked up 499 total offensive yards while Tennessee’s defense held Virginia to just 201 total yards offensively. Vols quarterback Joe Milton III ended the game with four total touchdowns and 201 passing yards on 21-of-30 attempts. James Pearce Jr., on the other hand, was one of the brightest spots in the game as he ended with three tackles and two sacks in the first game of his sophomore season.
After the game, six Tennessee players met with the media to break down their immediate thoughts: RBs Dylan Sampson and Jaylen Wright, DB Wesley Walker, QB Joe Milton III, LB Aaron Beasley, and EDGE James Pearce Jr.
