This is a curious matchup. Both teams were the runners up in
their respective conference’s weaker division. Draw from that what you will. I’d
try to sell you on this game but you probably already know if you’re going to
watch this one or not.
Another Big Ten-SEC matchup. Jims Harbaugh and McElwain had
about as good a first year as you can ask for as a head coach. Both teams are
building towards a bright future. This bowl game won’t tell you who will be
better down the road, but it’s another way to assess progress.
Just found out that my Vols will be playing in the Outback Bowl in Tampa and, as a band member, I can’t wait for the battle of the bands at Busch Gardens! I seriously hope we get some time off to ride the coasters!
Alright VolNation! I hope you got to watch Tennessee defeat Northwestern 45-6 in the Outback Bowl! It was a memorable game for players such as Jalen HURD, Josh Dobbs, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, and Brian Randolph. The Vols had 226 rushing yards led by Jalen HURD who had 130 and also had a touchdown! He became the first Vol to rush for 100 yards in 2 bowl games! Josh Dobbs had 2 touchdowns and Alvin Kamara had 1. With less than a minute to go, Evan Berry intercepted the ball in the end zone and returned it for a 100 yard touchdown! Wondering who the MVP of the game is? It’s none other than Mr. Jalen HURD! Much deserved award!
