The Tennessee Vols lost on Saturday, but there’s no doubt Alvin Kamara was one of the winners of the day.
ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit noted the effort of the running back in his weekly top performers tweet, putting the Tennessee captain right at the top of his list.

There is good reason for the accolades.
Kamara combined for 288 total yards and three touchdowns in the comeback, which ultimately wasn’t enough. The speedy junior rushed for 127 yards on 18 carries and caught eight passes for another 161 yards.
