Tennessee Volunteers Game Summaries. Under New Coach, Vols Play Inspired Football; Tennessee defeats #20 LSU, 21-7 University of Tennessee, TN- Much was made during the last week over the hiring of new coach, Jam1278. Mid-season coaching changes are rare, but after a 4-3 start, the Volunteers decided they needed to make a change. Coach Jam had little head coaching experience, but he seemed like a man on a mission this week, eager to prove himself to his new fans. We were told we'd run the ball, and stop the run. We were told our defense would be suffocating and force mistakes. But most importantly, we were told we'd win games. Well, so far, Coach Jam has been Nostradamus. The Volunteers displayed the epitome of a run-first offense, only asking Red Shirt Sophomore Micheal Rozier to throw the ball 9 times. All-American Bryce Brown showcased his talent in front of 108,194 fans, running 35 times for 167 yards and 2 touchdowns, but fumbling once. The defense was nothing short of spectacular, holding a talented LSU team to only 7 points, their lowest total of the season (?). LSU's Senior QB Jordan Jefferson was a measly 9-19, 145 yards and a touchdown. But most importantly, he was forced into 2 interceptions by the ballhawking defensive backs of the Volunteers. It's safe to say that Tennessee may have found a true coaching gem in Coach Jam, as they might find themselves back in the top 25 after this impressive win. The Volunteers next game is against 1-7 (0-7) Duke at 1:00, as the soft portion of the schedule is upcoming. The Volunteers find themselves playing 1-7 Duke, at 1-6 Kentucky, and against 3-5 Vanderbilt. Its very possible for our Volunteers to be 8-3 going into their last game of the season against Texas A&M on November 26.
