With defensive coordinator Johnny Chavis back at the helm of the Tennessee defense (he was gone for a few weeks, right?), the Vols held Darren McFadden to a mere (!) 116 yards rushing, effectively shutting down the Arkansas offense. Impressive play, and for the second time this year (Georgia was the first), I’ve picked the Vols to lose only to be pleasantly wrong in my predictions.
Congrats to the team and coaches for pulling it all together after the somewhat rocky, and emotionally upsetting week.
