How are the Vols currently trending in major stat categories?

NCAA Football: Tennessee Tech at Tennessee Michael Patrick-USA TODAY Sports

Here's this week's update showing how the Tennessee Volunteers are trending in all of the NCAA's official stat categories.

What Tennessee is currently doing well

Stat 2015 App St. VT Ohio FL GA TAM AL SC TT
Blocked Kicks Allowed 28 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

Kickoff Returns 1 4 3 41 22 22 28 21 3 3
Fumbles Recovered 81 1 3 4 2 3 4 7 13
Team Tackles for Loss 80 55 42 63 57 45 57 36 26 15
Red Zone Offense 82 1 1 1 68 62 47 36 29 17
4th Down Conversion Pct Defense 123 70 58 51 39 47 46 39 48 18

New this week: 4th Down Conversion Pct Defense, Punt Returns, 3rd Down Conversion Pct Defense, Passing Yards Allowed.
Falling out of the Top 30 this week:
None.

Some improvement on defense this week. Good. And it should be nice going forward to be able to save Alvin Kamara for standard rushing duties now that it looks like there's a good sub for him in Marquez Callaway.

Where Tennessee needs major improvement

Stat 2015 App St. VT Ohio FL GA TAM AL SC TT
First Downs Offense 37 75 97 76 71 78 46 98 101 95

New this week: None.
Getting out of the gutter this week: Total Offense, Rushing Defense.

It's good to see Total Offense and Rushing Defense climb out of the gutter this week, but there's still a long way to go, both for them and for some of the other categories still stuck down here.
