Team 118 of the Tennessee Volunteers kicked off the 2014 season with a resounding 38-7 win over the Utah State Aggies Sunday night.
The Vols had no problem limiting quarterback Chuckie Keeton and completely shutting down the Utah State offense. In fact, they were well on their way toward a shutout before a busted coverage in the fourth quarter allowed the Aggies to finally put seven points on the board.
What makes the blowout all the more impressive is the fact that Tennessee started an incredible 15 newcomers on offense, defense and special teams.
In a night with that many newcomers, there are bound to be serious mistakes. However, Tennessee's coaches did a fantastic job of managing their young players, keeping their emotions in check and limiting penalties and mental mistakes.
Here's a report card breakdown of every new Tennessee starter who took the field Sunday night.
