KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee doesn't expect to have trouble finding motivation for Saturday's season finale at Kentucky finale even though a bowl bid isn't at stake.
The chance to build momentum by earning its first true road win in three years is all the incentive the Volunteers need.
Although Tennessee (4-7, 1-6 SEC) beat North Carolina State 35-21 in Atlanta in its 2012 season opener, the Volunteers haven't won a game in an opposing team's stadium since a 24-10 victory over Vanderbilt on Nov. 20, 2010. The Vols have dropped 12 consecutive true road games, including a 10-7 loss at Kentucky in 2011 that ended Tennessee's 26-game winning streak in this series.
Tennessee coach Butch Jones says, "We have to prove that we can go on the road and win football games."
