Young Vols get well deserved playing opportunities

Tennessee took the opportunity of fall break recess to travel to Birmingham on Friday for an afternoon match against the University of Alabama - Birmingham. Some young Volunteers got some well deserved playing time and took good advantage with a 28-10 victory.

The Volunteers seemed to gain confidence the deeper they got into the game against a bigger and more mature UAB team.  UT kept the penalty count low and valued possession throughout most of the contest.  16 of the 21 players that participated in the match were either a freshman or sophomore.
