KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Derek Dooley isn't sure
if Tyler Bray has figured out how to checkdown pass to his second
or third target options. The young quarterback is too focused on
making big plays to go with a shorter and sometimes safer option.
That's OK with Dooley as long as the Volunteers' passing game
remains as strong against Cincinnati this week as it was in a 42-16
victory against Montana on Saturday.
Bray and sophomore wide receivers Justin Hunter and Da'Rick
Rogers were dynamic in the win and helped the Vols overcome a slow
start in the running game. Bray was 17 for 24 with three touchdowns
and 293 yards, while Hunter had 146 yards and a touchdown and
Rogers picked up 100 yards and a touchdown.
