KNOXVILLE (AP) -- Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer says there's no panic despite a 1-and-2 record and a 39-point loss to archrival Florida.
He said today it's a tough time, but the program will fight through it as it's done in the past.
Fulmer said tough times don't last, but tough people do.
He said there are fine coaches on his staff who've done it for a long time.
Tennessee fell out of the AP poll as a result of the loss.
The Vols are now gearing up for Arkansas State. The Indians will come to Knoxville with a 1-1 record. They beat SMU Saturday night 45-28. They lost their opener at Texas 21-13.
ASU is coached by Steve Roberts. He's in his sixth season as head coach of the Tribe. Arkansas State is located in Jonesboro.
