Vols fighting post-Florida blahs?

The Vols, perhaps still basking in their near miss last week against Florida, find themselves in a game late in the second quarter against Ohio.

They were trailing 14-7, but have come back to take a 21-14 lead. Monte Kiffin’s defense has been the difference. Defensive end Chris Walker picked off a screen pass near the Ohio goal line and returned it for a touchdown.

Walker is one of the most athletic defensive ends in the SEC and is a great fit for Kiffin’s defense.

The discouraging news for the Vols is that they haven't been able to run the football.
