KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs is getting a tough introduction to Southeastern Conference football.
Pressed into a starting role as a freshman after injuries decimated Tennessee's quarterback depth, Dobbs has thrown five interceptions without a touchdown pass. Dobbs was 11 of 19 for 53 yards with two interceptions last week in a 14-10 loss to Vanderbilt.
Tennessee coach Butch Jones says Dobbs has continued to show progress but that "I thought Saturday he showed his age a little bit."
Dobbs' issues reflected the overall struggles of Tennessee's offense during a four-game skid that knocked the Volunteers out of bowl contention. Tennessee (4-7, 1-6 SEC) has averaged 11.5 points over its last four games heading into its season finale Saturday at Kentucky (2-9, 0-7), which has the SEC's worst pass efficiency defense.
