Down 20-3, Tennessee struck back with A.J. Johnson's 2-yard touchdown run to narrow it to 20-10.
The Tide tacked on a 34-yard Jeremy Shelley field goal.

The Vols forced one three-and-out, but then a long punt return gave the Tide field position at the UT 47. McCarron passed 23 yards to wide-open Amari Cooper for the touchdown.
Tennessee mounted an 11-play drive but had to settle for Michael Palardy's 32-yard field goal.
