Tyler Bray threw two more TD passes in the third quarter to send Tennessee to a 34-17 lead over Kentucky with one period left.
Bray hit Mychal Rivera for 29 yards and Cordarrelle Patterson for 21 for the scores.
Kentucky got a 29-yard field goal from Craig McIntosh after a 15-play drive that consumed the first 7:23 of the second half.
Tennessee led 20-14 at halftime.
The Vols stretched their lead to 20-7 early in the second quarter on a 42-yard TD pass from Bray to Justin Hunter. The PAT was blocked.
Kentucky responded, though, when Jonathan George broke a 45-yard touchdown run that looked all too familiar to Tennessee fans.
Hunter then dropped what would have been a first-down catch in Kentucky territory and that was the Vols' last threat of the half.Bray passed 21 yards to Zach Rogers on the game's first possession, but Kentucky answered with a sustained drive. Alcoa's D.J. Warren scored on a 1-yard pass from Jalen Whitlow.
The Vols went ahead 14-7 on A.J. Johnson's 2-yard run, then later had a TD pass wiped off by a holding penalty on Tiny Richardson.
