Can't let Tennessee hang around like that, Troy.
Like shootouts? Tennessee-Troy might be for you! Except, you know, Tennessee probably wasn't locked in a tight game with Troy at the half.
Good news, though, Vols! A field goal as time expired gave Tennessee a 31-30 lead. Over Troy. From the SunBeast.
Say, friends, let's look at the stats to see what a complete defensive dumpster fire looks like.
- Troy racked up 358 total yards in the first half. Thanks to that final drive in the half, though, Tennessee ended up with 364 yards.
- Troy first downs: 19. Tennessee first downs: 17.
- Troy is a combined 17-28 for 216 yards and a touchdown through the air. Tyler Bray: 16-25 for 313 yards and three touchdowns through the air. So that's good, at least.
- The Trojans rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries in the half. That's ... not so good for the Tennessee defense.
