The Volunteers used a balanced offensive attack to claim victory over their FCS opponent nine years to the day the Mountaineers knocked off No. 5 Michigan in one of the biggest upsets in college football history.


Yeah, that's not what stings the worst, by a long shot, but I'm ready for App to be known for more than the Michigan win. At least the next time (in two weeks) we are taking it to a P5, they'll bring up this one, in addition to the Michigan game.

The best part about the Miami game is that it will be on ESPN at noon, necessitating fact checks including knowing players names. The coverage last night wasn't bad but the post-game coverage of this game hasn't been about App being the favorite for the Sun Belt or the relative success compared to other FBS move-ups; it has been about how Tennessee is still the Tennessee everyone has come to know.

I honestly believe I sense some of that same sentiment here but ultimately what App showed last night was that they are well coached and have developed quality depth to the extent that when the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year goes down his back-up comes in and stuffs the run at the LOS. Duck and Vic Johnson both played well beyond their freshman labels and it can't all be attributed to how Tennessee executed.
