Vols move to 5-0 with defeat of Auburn

By MTB, 10/28/16, 9:30AM EDT


Vols run across 9 tries in the victory

Tennessee traveled to Auburn on Saturday to take on the Tigers. After a 30 inute delayed kickoff due to travel related issues, the Volunteers wasted little time crossing the try line.  5 first half tries and another 4 in the second accounted for the 54-3 final.  

Josh Landon had two tries and played aggressive defense to lead the Volunteer effort in the first half. When speaking with prospective students, the UT coaching staff stresses the opportunity for early playing time with the appropriate commitment. Against Auburn, Tennessee started 4 and played 5 freshmen. 

Auburn only confirmed one match so there was no reserve game.  

Next, the Volunteers return home to face the top ranked Kentucky Wildcats on Sunday.  Kickoff is set for 1 PM at the Tennessee Rugby Park.
