His completion percentage went down and he threw two picks, but Bray was still very impressive.
He was getting constant pressure in the pocket, his No. 1 receiver was out, and his No. 2 receiver was being double covered the whole game. There was also the lack of a run game giving him trouble and he was still able to throw for 288 yards.
To add even more difficulty, Tennessee was behind the whole time and had to play aggressively to catch up, which made Bray force less than ideal passes.
Tennessee was still better than Florida in third down efficiency, and that's one of the key figures for determining whether a quarterback is a contender or a pretender. That certainly means something.
Bray's completion percentage dropped to 54 percent, but if that's as bad as it gets, that's pretty dang good for a sophomore. Bray looks like legitimate first-round material, and if he keeps improving, he may end up being the first quarterback of his class selected in the draft.
Bray is obviously great, and as long as he's under center, Tennessee will still be a powerful offense.
