The Fifth Quarter

The Fifth Quarter
It was over when:
Buffalo signed the contract. Then officially unofficially over when Da'Rick Rogers gathered in Tyler Bray's touchdown toss from 7 yards out 11 minutes into the first quarter for an insurmountable 14-0 lead.
The stats don't lie:
Tennessee finally rushed the ball more effectively, averaging 4.5 yards-per-carry on 44 attempts for 199 yards. Yet here's the truth: Buffalo was better; the Bulls averaged 5.3 ypc on 28 attempts.
He stole the show:
Devrin Young. The much-talked about UT freshman from here in Knoxville burst onto the college scene in the Vols' fourth game with a 43-yard punt return on his very first touch. Young later added a 34-yard kickoff return and closed the day with 100 all-purpose yards. But, Young also partly stole the show with fumbled kickoff. Oh well. He electrified the crowd and looked good in the process.
Oh, what a play call:
Actually, two calls on Tennessee's first offensive series. Jim Chaney went to Rajion Neal on back-to-back plays, first throwing to the tailback-turned-wideout for 14 yards. Then on the next play, Neal took a misdirection end around and jetted 20 yards to paydirt for the Vols' first score.
This match up proved key:
Anyone in a Buffalo uniform who tried to defend Da'Rick Rogers. All the Vols' sophomore wideout did was tax the Bulls' defense for 180 receiving yards on seven catches with two touchdowns.
