Vol schedule update

Five of the eight opponents left on Tennessee's 2007 football schedule posted victories over the weekend. The most impressive winner was this weekend's opponent, Georgia.

Here's a quick look at how the Vols' future foes fared:

Georgia (Oct. 6). The Dawgs (4-1 overall, 2-1 SEC) got 180 rushing yards and three TDs on just 16 carries from Thomas Brown in a 45-17 thrashing of an Ole Miss team that gave Florida fits seven days earlier.

Mississippi State (Oct. 13 at Starkville). The Bulldogs (3-2, 1-2) managed just 45 net rushing yards in a 38-21 loss at South Carolina.

Alabama (Oct. 20 at Tuscaloosa). The Tide (3-2, 2-1) got a mere 36 rushing yards from injured tailback Terry Grant and a paltry 89 total rushing yards in a 21-14 loss at Florida State.

South Carolina (Oct. 27). The Gamecocks (4-1, 2-1) responded to freshman QB Chris Smelley – he completed 19 of 37 for 279 yards starting in place of Blake Mtichell – in a 38-21 defeat of Mississippi State.

Louisiana-Lafayette (Nov. 3). The Ragin' Cajuns (0-5) surrendered 223 rushing yards to NCAA leader Kevin Smith in a 37-19 loss to Central Florida. Michael Desormeaux led the ULL in both rushing (92 yards) and passing (154 yards).

Arkansas (Nov. 10). The Razorbacks piled up 507 total yards in the first half – 713 for the game – en route to a 66-7 blowout of hapless North Texas.

Vanderbilt (Nov. 17) The Commodores (3-1, 1-1) dumped Eastern Michigan 30-7, despite a poor game by Chris Nickson, who completed 14 of 28 passes for 168 yards but threw five interceptions.

Kentucky (Nov. 24 at Lexington). The Wildcats (5-0, 1-0) got 112 rushing yards from Rafael Little and 301 passing yards from Andre Woodson in a 45-17 pasting of Florida Atlantic.
