Another week, another top defense

Tennessee offensive coordinator Jim Chaney addresses the media as the Volunteers face another tough defensive opponent in the South Carolina Gamecocks. Be sure to come to InsideTennessee.com for all your Vols football coverage.

Jim Chaney and the Tennessee offense have only managed to post 13 points in their last two contests against Alabama and LSU, who have the Nos. 1 and No. 3 defenses in the country, respectively.

The Volunteers won't get much of a break this week when they do battle with South Carolina, who has the No. 7-ranked defense in the land.

Not only that, but Tennessee will march out true freshman Justin Worley for his first college start in Saturday's game and South Carolina will counter with the nation's top-ranked passing defense.

The Gamecocks have forced an SEC best 14 interceptions in 2011 and are surrendering a stingy average of 133.7 yards through the air.

Carolina is also getting immediate pressure in the face of opposing quarterbacks, ranking third in the league with 15 sacks, 13 of which have come in their last four contests.

The combination of Worley and a shuffled offensive line will give the Gamecocks a whole new look from the Volunteers. Watch as offensive coordinator Jim Chaney addresses Worley, the offense and their upcoming matchup with South Carolina.
