Vols Looking to Avenge Last Year's Loss to Cats?
Perhaps the low point for the Derek Dooley era at Tennessee came last year in Kentucky. The Wildcats ended a 26-game losing streak against the Vols. And Kentucky did it by playing a receiver at quarterback. The Cats finished the game with just 15-yards passing, but they still won 10-7. So will that ugly loss provide anymore motivation for Tennessee on Saturday? Said running back Marlin Lane,"It's a lot of motivation this year because we saw the emotion of the seniors in the locker room." Said linebacker Herman Lathers,"I wasn't at the game last year. It's not on our mind. The main focus right now is winning this game and going out with a bang. Ending the season on a good note." Said fullback Ben Bartholomew,"I think it's more about just Tennessee. We are tennessee. We know who we are. We know we have to come out there and play our game, and we'll win."
