Rocked on Rocky Top: UConn football loses at Tennessee

In a game that could kindly be described as lopsided, UConn football lost to Tennessee, 59-3, on Saturday to push its record to 1-8.

Big plays demonstrated how overmatched the Huskies were at Neyland Stadium. On the second play of the game, Tennessee running back Jaylen Wright took an option hand-off 82 yards up the middle to quickly give the home team the lead. It was the first of three first-half Volunteer touchdowns scored on plays over 60 yards.

Quarterback Joe Milton hit touchdown passes of 60 and 82 yards, one on a busted coverage in the first quarter and another in the second where receiver Squirrel White caught it in the middle of the field and outran every remaining defender into the end zone.
