KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Leaning on the passing game is a
no-brainer for Tennessee wide receiver Gerald Jones when the person
throwing it freshman quarterback Tyler Bray.
Jones says why not throw the ball down the field when you have a
quarterback who's led the Southeastern Conference in passing two
weeks in a row and Tennessee has scored 102 points in back-to-back
wins over Memphis and Mississippi.
The Vols (4-6, 1-5) rank fifth in the SEC in passing with an
average 241.1 yards passing game and have scored 18 of their 34
touchdowns this season on passes - with eight of them coming in the
two games Bray has been the starter.
Vanderbilt, who Tennessee faces Saturday, has only nine passing
touchdowns for the whole season and is averaging 141.4 yards, which
ranks it 113th in the FBS.
