KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Butch Jones understands the importance of forcing No. 2 Oregon's offense to rely on long drives instead of quick strikes.


He also realizes that's easier said than done.


The Ducks (2-0) head into Saturday's game with Tennessee averaging 62.5 points per game this season after ranking second nationally with 49.5 points per game last year. The average length of Oregon's 17 touchdowns has been 22.9 yards.


Jones calls Oregon "probably the most complete team I've seen in a number of years to date."


This represents by far the toughest test for a Tennessee defense that was vulnerable to big plays last season. The Volunteers (2-0) gave up seven touchdowns of at least 70 yards and 14 touchdowns of at least 40 yards a year ago.
