The Tennessee Vols‘ offense has been the biggest story in college football this season.
Tennessee is averaging over 47 points per game this season. Aside from their 27-13 loss to Georgia last week, the Vols haven’t scored less than 34 points in a game in 2022.
There’s a stat from Saturday, however, that truly shows how dominant Tennessee’s offense has been this season.
The Vols beat Missouri 66-24 in Neyland Stadium on Saturday. The Tigers entered the game with a reputation for being a team that doesn’t allow many points.
Before playing Tennessee on Saturday, Mizzou had allowed over 26 points just once this season (a 40-12 week two loss to Kansas State).
Over their last four games before playing the Vols, the Tigers had allowed a total of 69 points (17 points per game).
Tennessee almost matched what Missouri had given up in four games in just four quarters.
And let’s be honest — if the Vols wanted to put up 70 against the Tigers, they could’ve.
This Tennessee offense has truly been remarkable this season. And it seems like every week there’s a new stat that’s mindblowing.
By the way, we can go ahead and give you a heads-up on next week’s mindblowing stat.
If the Vols score 38 points against South Carolina, they’ll set a new program record for points scored in a season (and there will still be one regular season game still remaining — the season finale is against Vanderbilt).
The previous record of 511 points was set last season.
