Knoxville, TN – The #25/21-ranked Tennessee Volunteers led from the first play to the last in a 42-7 victory over Indiana State on Saturday in the home opener at Neyland Stadium.
“Today was a good win,” head coach Butch Jones said. “I’m really proud of our players. They showed some mental toughness. With the short turnaround, I thought they did a very good job all week long of trying to prepare their bodies and their minds, so I’m really proud of them. I thought one of the keys to the game was third-down defense and being able to get off the field.”
Tennessee (2-0) wasted no time in taking the momentum when freshman Ty Chandler returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown, and the Vols scored 28 unanswered points to start against the Sycamores (0-2).
