Tennessee Volunteers Football: Winners & Losers from the Week 4 Game vs. Akron

The Tennessee Volunteers were almost the biggest losers of the college football world Saturday night, but they escaped disaster with a 47-26 win over the Akron Zips. While the game was sloppy and uninspiring, there were a few winning performance from the Big Orange.

They'll need several more of those going into a six-game stretch that features five SEC games, three of which are on the road and another that is against defending national champion Alabama.

So far, the Vols are only lacking a big win against Florida. It's no small order, but that's the only real black mark. Had they been able to pull that win out, our tune would be totally different right now.

Even though I have serious concerns about the future of the program, there were some bright spots from the Akron game that, if exploited, can propel Tennessee going into October and the treacherous SEC schedule.
