         KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Rajion Neal rushed for 141 yards and Justin Worley threw three touchdown passes Saturday as Tennessee began Butch Jones' coaching tenure with a 45-0 rout of Austin Peay.
         Neal and Worley sat out the entire third and fourth quarters after Tennessee scored touchdowns on each of its six first-half possessions. Worley went 11 of 13 for 104 yards and threw touchdown passes to Devrin Young, Alton "Pig" Howard and Brendan Downs. Neal opened the scoring with a career-long 47-yard touchdown.
         Jones was hired in December to turn around a storied program that has produced three straight losing seasons for the first time in over a century. Jones replaced Derek Dooley, who was fired after going 15-21 in three years. Jones' debut had an announced attendance of 97,169.
         Tennessee led 21-0 before Austin Peay got a first down. Austin Peay, a Football Championship Subdivision program, has lost 17 consecutive road games.
