SEC Round Up: Tennessee eventually gets going
We here at Hail Florida Hail have pointed out that for all the hype, Joe Milton has received coming into the season, he is the same guy that has been benched twice.
He did finish 21/30 for 201 yards, for a fairly pedestrian 6.7 yards per attempt.
His overall arm strength was effortless, but he does have some Anthony Richardson like accuracy issues.
The real strength for Tennessee was their running game. When it was rolling. Tennessee was able to gash Virginia up the middle with ease.
Jaylen Wright had 115 yards rushing off 12 carries.
Tennessee join the club of slow starters in the SEC on Saturday as the Volunteers were only up 7-0 with five minutes to play in the first half.
Kentucky wins in very Kentucky fashion
Kentucky has this way of picking up some of the most random ways to score. The story was no different yesterday as the Wildcats had to utilize a couple of nontraditional scores to pull away from Ball State.
Ball State had the lead after the first quarter, and even after Kentucky responded to take 10-7 lead, the Cardinals had the ball in Kentucky territory before a fumble led to a 69 yard return for a touchdown.
Another fumble led to a field goal. The dagger was after Ball State scored a touchdown to pull within 30 to 14, and then Kentucky returned the kickoff for a touchdown.
Transfer Devin Leary was okay, going 18/31 for 241 yards. Ray Davis rams for 112 yards off 14 carries.
