Les Miles brought the top ranked LSU Tigers to Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium on Saturday for another road game and defeated the Tennessee Volunteers 38-7.  After jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the first half the Vols closed within 14-7 with 2:24 remaining in the 1st half behind the running of Tauren Poole.  LSU came right back with a field goal to end the half with LSU up 17-7.  Everyone was left wondering how Tennessee would approach the 2nd half after Matt Simms had thrown 2 first half interceptions and with Poole running the ball well to end the 1st half.  Unfortunately for Tennessee , LSU’s Defense took over under the guidance of John Chavis.  It was a difficult day for Coach Chavis returning for the first time to Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium as the Defensive Coordinator for LSU.

The 2nd half back breaker for Tennessee was a 99 yard touchdown drive accomplished by all running plays.  Vol Fans started hitting the aisles after going up 31 to 7 with 8:55 left in the game.  Starter Matt Simms was ineffective replacing the SEC leading Quarterback Tyler Bray who might miss the rest of the season with a hand injury.

From a fan perspective it was a beautiful day in Knoxville for the LSU/Tennessee football game.  Tiger Fans were huffing and puffing navigating the hills around Tennessee’s beautiful College Football game day.  Attending a Volunteer Football game is one of the best college football has to offer.  The Tennessee Band and the Vols running through the T gets no better on a pristine Fall Day in Knoxville, TN.
