A quick look at how Tennessee's remaining opponents performed this past weekend.
- Beat the Austin Peay Governors 72-10. Um, pretty fortunate field position there, fellas. That has to be some sort of record:

- Much of the field position advantage was a result of turnovers, so make of it what you will. I mean, it's not like Tennessee had any ball control issues in its first game and should have to worry about a team that was +5 in turnovers last week. Gulp.
- According to Down the Drive, the game featured the highest run/pass ratio since the Mark Dantonio era, consisting 49 rushes and 22 passes. Big East Coast Bias says that 12 different guys carried the ball for the the Bearcats. They averaged just under eight yards per carry. Yes, it was Austin-Peay, but it was also Montana. As Will kept saying on the podcast Sunday night, we've gone from this being one of those six mostly-certain wins on the schedule to being an uh-oh game.
- Lost to Pittsburgh on the road 35-16.
- Lost to Boise State in the Georgia Dome 35-21.
- Beat the Kent State Hot Flashes at home 48-7.
- Beat the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything on the road 56-37.

- Lost to Purdue 24-27 on a blocked field goal in the final seconds.
- Beat the Missouri State Bears at home 51-7.
- Beat the Elon Phoenix at home 45-14.
- Narrowly escaped the towel 14-3 in Nashville.
