The days of the high flying Tennessee offense with Josh Dobbs are long gone. This year’s Tennessee offense is a far cry from the one that averaged 36.4 points per game a year ago.
With a scoreless first half against Alabama, the Volunteers have now gone a full 12 quarters without scoring a touchdown. The Volunteers were held to three field goals against South Carolina, were shut out by Georgia and did not score a touchdown in the second half of the game against UMass.
The Volunteers made a quarterback change after the Georgia game, electing to go with redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano. While Tennessee moved the ball against the Gamecocks, the lack of touchdowns ended up costing them the game.
If the Volunteers don’t score in this game they could tie the Power-5 record for most quarters without a touchdown in the past 10 seasons.
Tennessee has gone 12 straight quarters without a TD, 2nd-longest streak among Power 5 teams in last 10 seasons (Missouri, 14 in 2015).
