Tennessee Tech vs Tennessee Preview

The Volunteers fell to 1-1 a week ago, and quarterback Joe Milton may have lost his starting job in the process.

Milton completed 7 of 12 passes for 50 yards, adding 54 rushing yards, before succumbing to a leg injury in the second quarter of Tennessee’s 41-34 home loss to the Pittsburgh Panthers.

The redshirt junior gave way to Hendon Hooker, a redshirt senior, who racked up 188 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 15-of-21 passing to go with 49 yards on the ground. Hooker threw an interception on Tennessee’s last possession and lost a fumble.

“I thought he did some really good things from within the pocket,” Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel said Monday of Hooker, according to 247 Sports. “Stood in there, got hit on a couple of throws and delivered the ball accurately down the football field.”

Milton overthrew open receivers behind the Panthers defensive backfield multiple times last week, miscues that stand out even more in a one-score defeat. He also lost a fumble.

“I think watching the video — Joe knows this, too — there’s opportunities to make some plays in the pass game that were certainly there,” Heupel said Monday, per 247 Sports. “Multiple occasions where we’re running free in the secondary, and there’s nobody relatively close. At this level of play against a good defense, plays that we have to make.”

On Wednesday, the head coach couldn’t say whether Milton would be healthy enough to play against the Golden Eagles. He also couldn’t say whether an available Milton would start over Hooker.

“We do not have a starter yet,” Heupel said, per 247 Sports.

The Golden Eagles are also coming off a loss, albeit a far more decisive one; they fell to the Furman Paladins 26-0 last week, dropping to 0-2 on the year.

Tennessee Tech quarterbacks Davis Shanley and Willie Miller combined to complete 11 of 29 passes for 98 yards, and Shanley tossed a trio of interceptions. The Golden Eagles were even less effective on the ground, amassing 23 yards on 22 carries.

“Our defense played very well, played hard and were put into some bad spots at times,” Tennessee Tech head coach Dewayne Alexander said, according to the school’s athletics website. “We never could get anything consistent going on offense. We started with a really good drive, but we just weren’t able to finish. We’re scrapping hard, but the consistency is not where it needs to be. There’s a difference in playing hard and playing well — you still have to be able to do both.”
