    Tennessee outscored 35-0 second half in 48-13 loss to Oregon

    Updated: September 12th, 2010
  • Tennessee looked for all the world as if they had a good chance to upset number 7 Oregon in the first half. Tennessee ran for about 150 yards in the first half and had a 13 to 6 lead nearing the break. Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti made a few changes to his defensive scheme and from there on out Tennessee basically did nothing. They did not get anywhere near Oregon’s end zone for the remainder of the game. Oregon came out in the second half with a strong running game featuring James. On the 2nd possession of half 2, the game changed for good. With the score tied at 13, James took the ball on a hand-off planned for a run to the right side. He was about to lose three yards so he changed field and went left instead tight-roping the sideline for a dramatic 72 yard touchdown. The game was over at that point. Oregon scored on a Sims interception on an all out Oregon blitz shortly after that and the rout was on.

    Tennessee did show that they are capable and ahead of schedule on rebuilding and should improve all year. Coach Dooley has done a great job and it is good to see Tennessee has a chance to be a powerhouse once again.
