Vols' Cortez McDowell talks defensive productivity

Tennessee made its greatest point-deficit comeback in Neyland Stadium on Saturday night versus Florida after trailing behind 21 points by the first quarter and managing to put up 35 points in the second half of the matchup.

Huge plays from the defense after halftime were game changers for the Team 120, even though they lacked the presence of team captain Cameron Sutton and saw very limited play time from Jalen Reeves-Maybin due to an injury.

Junior linebacker Cortez McDowell spoke with the media on Monday, Sept. 26 about the productivity on defense and how they are able to step up during crunch time to prevent the Gators from moving the ball down the field, plus more.
