Angry Tennessee eager to end two-game skid
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Butch Jones appreciates the remorse his players showed in the locker room last week after their second straight loss.
Now the Volunteers (2-2) want to take out their frustrations on South Alabama (2-1).
Saturday's game represents Tennessee's best chance for a victory in a six-game stretch that features five ranked teams. The Vols fell 59-14 at No. 2 Oregon and 31-17 at No. 20 Florida the last two weeks. They host No. 9 Georgia and No. 12 South Carolina and visit No. 1 Alabama in their next three games after this one.
South Alabama and Tennessee have something in common, as both teams have beaten Western Kentucky. Tennessee beat the Hilltoppers 52-20 on Sept. 7. South Alabama defeated Western Kentucky 31-24 the following week.
