To Note
For the Record
• Tennessee Captains: Art Evans, Daryl Vereen and Ja’Wuan James

• Bray continued to add to his Tennessee record with his ninth consecutive game with at least two touchdown passes.
• Bray completed passes to a career-high tying nine dif erent receivers, eight of which had at least one by the end of the1rst half. That is the most receivers UT has completed a pass to in a single game this season.

• Today’s start marked the i rst for Bray outside of the state of Tennessee.

More Young Wideouts Emerging
• With sophomore wide receiver Justin Hunter leaving the game early in the 1rst quarter due to injury, the Vols had to turn to a number of new targets and three different players each recorded their i rst career catch.
• Freshman wideout D’Anthony Arnett stepped up in a big way, leading Tennessee with a team-high eight catches for 59 yards.

• Tennessee freshman running back Marlin Lane rushed for the fourth touchdown of his young career. He has at least one touchdown in each of his 1rst three collegaite contests.
