Even during the tough times for Tennessee football, the Vols could count on beating Kentucky when the Wildcats traveled to Neyland Stadium.

No more.

Kentucky forced four turnovers and thrashed No. 17 Tennessee 34-7 on Saturday in front of 22,519 at Neyland Stadium. It marked the first victory in Knoxville for Kentucky (2-2) since 1984.

Tennessee (2-2) had defeated Kentucky in 33 of the previous 35 matchups entering Saturday, with the two losses coming in Lexington in 2011 and 2017.

Here are five things we learned.
Tennessee quarterbacks fill up on interceptions

Tennessee has received underwhelming production from its quarterbacks since Joshua Dobbs’ departure after the 2016 season, and UT’s deficiencies at that position were on full display against Kentucky.

Vols quarterbacks Jarrett Guarantano and J.T. Shrout combined to produce turnovers on four consecutive first-half possessions.

First, Guarantano fumbled in Kentucky territory when Ty Chandler bumped into his quarterback’s arm while Guarantano was winding up to throw. Clearly, there was some miscommunication.

In Tennessee's only touchdown drive, Gray and Chandler had all the yards. It was a 75 yard drive, 71 of them were on the ground. Even before that, the Vols were moving the ball on the ground every time until somebody, usually Guarantano, made a crucial mistake.

Embarrassing. JG shouldn't be playing in SEC. Kid should be in MAC or some other weak conference. This team should never have been ranked to begin with. Play all the kids and see what the hell you have going forward. You may hurt some kids feelings but who cares.

JG doesn't impress me as an instinctive QB. He knows all the plays, he can make all the throws. And bless his heart, you know.

 

During the Kentucky game...*sigh:shakehead:... he cocked to pass and fumbled when Chandler ran into him. On a called running play, Chandler was supposed to get the ball. But instead 'Tano decided to get all instinctive, go rouge (again), and attempt a pass without telling anybody.

 

I imagine that Pruitt has already tore slabs offa JG's ass. I was going to say something about JG not having that instinctive QB's clock in his head. And sometimes he does hold on for too long. But that wasn't the case yesterday, too much edge pressure. Our returning o-linemen were getting beat.
