The last time Tennessee played Oregon, the Ducks turned Neyland Stadium into their own quack track, scoring 45 consecutive points on their way to a 48-13 win in 2010.
Since then, Oregon has played for a national championship and keeps recycling speed-burning superstars on its way to a continued run of national relevance. Former coach Chip Kelly surged to a head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles, giving way to offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
Tennessee, on the other hand, spiraled under former coach Derek Dooley before he was fired in favor of Butch Jones.
Now, the 2-0 Vols make a trip to Autzen Stadium, hoping to, somehow, figure out a way to slow down the No. 2-ranked Ducks. The names have changed for Oregon—De'Anthony Thomas instead of LaMichael James, Marcus Mariota instead of Darron Thomas and Thomas Tyner instead of Kenjon Barner. But the fact remains: Oregon is on a different speed level.
