WHAT'S AT STAKE
Alabama seeks to maintain its No. 1 ranking as it attempts to beat Tennessee for the 12th consecutive year. Tennessee tries to get over .500 and earn its second straight victory. The Volunteers snapped an 11-game SEC losing streak last week by producing a 30-24 upset at Auburn.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee wide receiver Jauan Jennings has bounced back from a tumultuous year and is starting to regain the form he showed two seasons ago, when his uncanny knack for producing big plays helped the Volunteers earn a top-10 ranking.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee offensive lineman Trey Smith has been cleared for full contact as he continues his comeback from blood clots in his lungs.
Volunteers coach Jeremy Pruitt said Wednesday that Smith has been cleared.
Smith missed spring practice due to his blood clots . He earned second-team all-Southeastern Conference honors as a freshman last year.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has dismissed wide receiver Jauan Jennings from the team after he ripped the Volunteers' coaching staff in a profanity-laced video posted on Instagram.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee will have to regroup from its devastating 26-20 loss to Florida without a few of its key performers.
Volunteers coach Butch Jones says linebacker Cortez McDowell and wide receiver Jauan Jennings will miss the rest of the season and that safety Todd Kelly Jr. is out indefinitely.
Jennings had been ruled out indefinitely before the season. Jones said Monday that the junior wideout won't play all year.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Butch Jones says that injured wide receiver Jauan Jennings is out "indefinitely."
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee wide receiver Jauan Jennings wants to be known for more than the two memorable catches that made him a household name in his home state last year.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Quinten Dormady delivered quite an opening volley in a Tennessee quarterback competition that figures to last well into the summer.
Dormady went 10-of-10 passing for 120 yards and threw touchdown passes on each of his two series Saturday in a weather-shortened Orange & White Game. Dormady is bidding to replace the departed Joshua Dobbs as Tennessee's starting quarterback.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A misdemeanor drug charge against Tennessee wide receiver Jauan Jennings has been dismissed.
Knox County Assistant District Attorney General Sean McDermott said Monday the case was dismissed after Jennings paid court costs and underwent an alcohol and drug assessment.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee wide receiver Jauan Jennings has been cited on a misdemeanor drug possession charge.
Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Wednesday that Jennings was cited Jan. 15 on a charge of simple possession (marijuana). DeBusk said the incident occurred during a traffic stop at 12:48 a.m.
DeBusk said Jennings also was cited for driving the wrong way on a one-way street and having no proof of insurance.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M has had a tough time piling on points late after building a lead this season.
The eighth-ranked Aggies know that if they get ahead Saturday against No. 9 Tennessee and let up it probably won't end well for them. Not what the Volunteers have done again and again this year.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — For a guy constantly described as calm and level-headed, Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs sure has a sense of drama.
His 43-yard Hail Mary pass to Jauan Jennings on the final play of a 34-31 victory at Georgia last week was simply his latest stirring comeback.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Given another chance, Brandon Kublanow would have closed his eyes.
Watching the final play of Georgia's loss to Tennessee was far too painful.
Kublanow, Georgia's senior center, and the other Bulldogs face a difficult job of refocusing on this week's game at South Carolina following Saturday's last-second 34-31 loss to Tennessee.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Tennessee works on the play every week in practice, just in case.
Throw it up and hope for the best.
It couldn't have worked out any better: a Hail Mary that gave the Volunteers their most improbable comeback yet.
Jauan Jennings hauled in a 43-yard pass from Joshua Dobbs on the final play, leaving No. 11 Tennessee with a stunning 34-31 victory over No. 25 Georgia after the Bulldogs appeared to win the game on a long TD pass of their own with 10 seconds remaining Saturday.
