Here’s what Luke Stocker, Tennesee’s tight end who had two passes for 23 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1, had to say during a morning conference call.
On the “revenge” factor heading into the UCLA game, after the Bruins won 27-24 in overtime last season:
“I wouldn’t say it’s a bit factor. It’s in the back of our minds for sure. But it’s not something we’re focusing on.”
On what went wrong for Tennessee last season against UCLA:
“We had a couple of turnovers and that blocked punt. Things like that will get any team beat.”
On the Volunteers sticking with the passing game too long last season, and how things have changed:
“That’s on the play-callers. If we’re running the ball well, we’ll keep running it. If not, we’ll pass it a little more.
