Vols lean on dynamic young QB, WRs

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Derek Dooley isn't sure if Tyler Bray has figured out how to checkdown pass to his second or third target options. The young quarterback is too focused on making big plays to go with a shorter and sometimes safer option.

That's OK with Dooley as long as the Volunteers' passing game remains as strong against Cincinnati this week as it was in a 42-16 victory against Montana on Saturday.

Bray and sophomore wide receivers Justin Hunter and Da'Rick Rogers were dynamic in the win and helped the Vols overcome a slow start in the running game. Bray was 17 for 24 with three touchdowns and 293 yards, while Hunter had 146 yards and a touchdown and Rogers picked up 100 yards and a touchdown.
