Tennessee's dynamic receiving duo
By Chris Low
Who's the best receiving tandem in the SEC?
Coming into the season, it would have been any two players from the Arkansas stable and may still be.
But closing fast is Tennessee's dynamic duo of Justin Hunter and Da'Rick Rogers, who have put on a show today against Cincinnati.
The Vols lead 45-23 in the fourth quarter, and Hunter and Rogers have combined for 20 catches, 256 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
The best news for Tennessee fans is that they're only sophomores, and they complement each other so well. Hunter's a classic deep threat with serious hops, while Rogers is a big, physical guy who will go over the middle and can also get deep.
Hunter and Rogers are going to give opposing defensive backfields fits for the next couple of years.
