In a near repeat of the game played six months ago, the Vols overcame a slow first half to defeat the Univeristy of Memphis in Nashville on Saturday.   Leading only 15-0 at the half due to a lack of focus and unforced errors, UT turned it on in the second half to win comfortably 55-7.    In the spring contest, it was a 7-13 halftime deficit that ended in a 41-13 victory for the Vols.   As was the case last spring, multiple scoring opportunties were wasted in the first half due to impatience and handling errors.  The second half was much more to the partisan crowd's liking with 6 well earned tries. 

Huge thanks to the support the team received in Nashville on Saturday.
