After third quarter: Tennessee 34, Kentucky 17

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.

The best part about this season coming to an end is we won't have to watch this horrible defense any more.

Can we please please get some speed on both sides of the ball. A fast running back would have over 200 yds rushing today.
