Recommended game | Tennessee Volunteers vs. Kentucky Wildcats

Why Tennessee can cover

The Volunteers are led by senior quarterback Hendon Hooker, who has completed 137 of 194 passes (70.6%) for 2,093 yards and 18 touchdowns. He has only been intercepted once and has a rating of 190.8. Hooker is also a threat running the ball, rushing 63 times for 315 yards (5.0 avg.) and three TDs. Hooker has topped 300 passing yards in three games this season, including 385 yards and five touchdowns against No. 3 Alabama on Oct. 15.

Hooker’s favorite target is junior wide receiver Jalin Hyatt. Hyatt has 40 receptions for 769 yards (19.2 average) and 12 touchdowns. He has five games with five or more catches and has at least two catches in every game this year. He lit up the Crimson Tide defense against Alabama, catching six passes for 207 yards (34.5 avg.) and five touchdowns. Last week against UT, Martin had seven receptions for 174 yards (24.9 avg.) and two TDs, all in the first half. The Vols are also hoping to get receiver Cedric Tillman back from an ankle injury. The 1,000-yard receiver in 2021 hasn’t played since Sept. 17.

Why Kentucky can cover

Senior quarterback Will Levis powers the Wildcats offense. In six games this season, Levis has completed 114 of 164 passes (69.5%) for 1,635 yards and 13 touchdowns with five interceptions and a 173.3 rating. In the win over Mississippi State, Levis completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9%) for 230 yards and one touchdown and one interception. He threw for four touchdowns on 18-of-26 passing (69.2 percent) for 303 yards in a 31-23 win over Northern Illinois on Sept. 24.

Senior running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. also helps power the Wildcat offense. In just three games, he carried 72 times for 395 yards (5.5 avg.) and three touchdowns. He was a force last weekend against Mississippi State, carrying 31 times for 197 yards and two scores. A week earlier against South Carolina, Rodriguez rushed 22 times for 126 yards. He is coming off a 1,379-yard season a year ago with nine TDs.
