Although UNLV gave the Vols some fits defensively, Fulmer and the rest of the staff know that tougher challenges lie ahead.
Brent Schaeffer and Erik Ainge's performance continued to get high marks from Fulmer, too. The two true freshman quarterbacks apparently called a pretty good game.
"They handled things pretty well," Fulmer said. "There was a lot of stuff called in the huddle they didn't have to look to the sidelines to get. They were right a lot more than they were wrong. There were four or five plays out of 72 that weren't run in the right direction or was the wrong play call."
Tennessee practices again on Thursday before taking Friday off.
