Through 3 parts
South Alabama jaguars usually have all the answers at home, but the Tennessee Volunteers are posing a difficult problem. Three-quarters in and Tennessee’s offense was really able to impose its will, dominating the Jaguars 49-7 three-quarters in.
QB Hendon Hooker took the lead so far for Volunteers, as he edged past two TDs and 273 yards in 20 attempts along with punching in a hasty bump. Speaking of players, WR Velus Jones Jr. went all the way with a return to kick-start to touchdown in the second quarter.
This ties up with the fewest points South Alabama has this year entering the fourth quarter.

What to know
Tennessee volunteers will again play host and welcome the South Alabama Leopard team to Neyland Stadium, which is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday. Both of these teams will be looking for an additional pick after significant defeats in their previous matches.
The Volunteers found themselves the reluctant ones to receive a nasty 41-17 punch in the gut against the Georgia Bulldogs last week. Tennessee loss comes despite a quality game from WR Cedric Tillman, who catches ten passes for a TD and 200 yards.
Meanwhile, the afternoon got off to a rough start in South Alabama last week, and it ended that way, too. Things couldn’t be worse for them when they lost 31-7 to the Appalachian State Climbing Team. South Alabama was certainly aware of their 21.5-point disadvantage in terms of point margin, but those who knew in advance did nothing to prevent this outcome. QB Desmond Trotter not a person who makes a difference for South Alabama; Trotter throws two blocks.
As the entire team struggled for points across the board, South Alabama’s defense took a hit, as they received two interceptions and two fumbles. Choices come courtesy of CB Devin Rockette and CB Darrell Luter Jr..
Tennessee is the favorite in this game, with an expected win score of 28 points. They have been consistent earners against the spread in favor (3-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The losses sent both teams down to an identical 5-5 scoreline. Some defensive numbers to note before getting started: The Volunteers are stumbling over the game with the most hastily allowed 225 touchdowns nationally, having dropped 22 of the season. The jaguars have had the hardest time of all: they are 162nd nationally in the number of rush touches allowed, with 13 during the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
