Kentucky Wildcats 17, Tennessee Volunteers 37 — Final

The Tennessee Volunteers dominated the Kentucky Wildcats in the second half of the 107th edition of the Battle for the Barrel. 

Tyler Bray led the Volunteers offense going 20-for-34 (58.8 percent) for 293 yards and four touchdowns. Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter and Mychal Rivera all looked like pro players going against a weak college team as receiving options. Marlin Lane and Raijon Neal were excellent running the ball as the entire Tennessee running game averaged 5.1 yards per carry.

On defense, Tennessee was able to dominate the second half with excellent play by A.J. Johnson and Jaron Toney. The Volunteers showed that there is a ton of talent on the roster this year in this game, but former coach Derek Dooley just couldn't get everything out of it.
