The Tennessee Volunteers game against Missouri was considered by many to be a must-win game. As it has gone this season, however, the Vols found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
This loss leaves Tennessee at a record of 4-6 and needing to win their last two games to be eligible for a bowl. That will be tough considering the next game is against a vastly improved Vanderbilt team.
The scenario continues to look very unlikely with reports on VolQuest.com that Derek Dooley's tenure at Tennessee is coming to an end.
As for the task at hand, grading this game is similar to grading last week's game against Troy. The offensive-skill position players will receive individual grades and the offensive line and defense will each be graded as a collective unit.
