Tennessee vs. Oregon: 10 Things We Learned in Volunteers' Loss
Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers traveled 2,500 miles west to face the No. 2 team in the nation, the Oregon Ducks. Las Vegas predicted a 28-point Duck win, but the reality was a 59-14 beatdown. No loss is a waste unless you learn nothing from it. To make sure this game is a stepping stone on the road to rebuilding, here are 10 things we learned from the game.

Butch Jones stated in a post-game interview that the performance against Oregon was unacceptable and "not the way we're going to play Tennessee football."

While Vols fans hope that's true in the long-term, it's too much to expect immediate upset victories over the nation's elite teams in Jones' third game as coach.

If Tennessee can learn from this game and have a great week of practice, the Florida Gators, who aren't having too great of a season themselves, could be on upset alert.
