Dobbs then hooked up with Josh Smith for a 24-yard touchdown pass. Dobbs had an easy throw considering the Kentucky defense left Smith wide open.

The Tennessee-Kentucky game has the early makings of a shootout, as the Wildcats scored on their first drive of the game as well. Dobbs will need to continue to play well and lead the Tennessee. The Volunteers are looking to end a three-game SEC losing streak. The game can be seen on the SEC Network.
