The Tennessee Vols entered this football game looking for a consistent performance on the offensive side of the ball. Entering the game, Missouri had been atrocious on defense, allowing over 260 yards against Boston College last weekend. Well, it didn’t take long for the Vols rushing game to make an impact.
As Tennessee held a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, it was time for Tiyon Evans to get in on the action. Hendon Hooker took the snap at the Missouri eight yard line, giving Evans enough room to break the 4th longest touchdown run in Tennessee history.
Ran past everyone.

There it was, 92 yards later, the Vols led 21-3 and looked to be on their way to a dominating performance. What followed was even worse for Missouri, as Tennessee rushed for 275 yards in the first half, with Tiyon Evans rushing for three TD’s.
The Vols were also helped by QB Hendon Hooker rushing for one touchdown himself. Tennessee scored on all seven possessions in the first half, leading to a 45-10 first half lead.
