In a weekly feature on InsideTennessee.com we will be picking three MVP honors for each football game.

Saturday's game with Western Kentucky, a 63-7 for Tennessee, gave us a lot to choose from.

In fact so much to choose from, we had a tie for a couple of the honors.

Co-Offensive MVPs

Montario Hardesty- finished the game with 18 carries, 160 yards and one touchdown.

Jonathan Crompton-A five touchdown performance was just what the doctor ordered for this senior signal caller. He was 21-for 28 for 233 yards. He had two interceptions against five scores.

Co-Defensive MVPs

Nick Reveiz- He finished the game with one solo tackle and five assisted tackles for a total of six. It was his big hits that earned him this honor. He was all over the field and in the words of Lane Kiffin, finishing off plays with tremendous hits. Reveiz plays middle linebacker for the Volunteers and is in charge of making all the defensive calls on the field.

Rico McCoy- Rico was also all over the field for the Vols. He finished with two solo tackles and three assist for a total of five.

Special teams MVP

LaMarcus Thompson- played a major role on special teams and had a great day playing linebacker. He had five solo tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one sack.

12th man Award

Lane Kiffin and the Vol coaching staff. We were totally impressed with Kiffin's offensive game plan and how he called the game. Very impressive for his first game as the Vols Head Coach.
