Before we go any further, go vote for Tyler Bray Capital One Cup Impact Performance of the Week.

Kind words aplenty for Tyler Bray and the Vols' offense generally

Mr. Bray received a helmet-sticker from the fine folks at the Worldwide Leader, a fancy award from the CFPA, an organization of which I was not previously familiar, a high grade from the KNS report card, the label of "dangerous" from, and an even-cooler label too: The perfect weapon |

In addition to breaking Peyton Manning's record for consecutive games with multiple touchdown passes, Bray and Company also hit a rather obscure statistical metric: the 400-100-100-100 club.

Da'Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter also got some love from the Worldwide Leader: Tennessee's dynamic receiving duo.

Lots more goodies after the jump.

Derek Dooley would like to let everyone know that the passing game success isn't that hard:

"It's not rocket science," Vols coach Derek Dooley said. "(Bray) can throw it and those two big guys can go down the field and catch it, so that's what we're going to do until they stop it, and when they stop it, we've got to find other things. He's played two really good games."

Tyler Bray would like everyone to know that he isn't nervous about going down the swamp.

"We’ll just go out there and do what we do — play backyard football and have fun," he said. "… We treat every away game like it’s a home game and just go out there and try to stay calm and play pitch and catch."

Some love for the defense as well

"The difference on defense really (was) the three big stops, the two fourth-and-ones at midfield; giant plays that allowed us to pull away," head coach Derek Dooley said.
