A couple of weeks ago, the Tennessee Vols completely shut down Kentucky quarterback Will Levis, a player that NFL draft analysts seem to love as a potential top-10 pick.
Against the Vols, Levis passed for 98 yards, 0 touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Not exactly what you expect from a potential first-round draft selection.
On Saturday, Tennessee once again made Levis look bad — even though the teams were playing in different states.
Levis passed for just 109 yards and one interception on Saturday in the Wildcats’ shocking 24-21 loss to the Vanderbilt Commodores.
Those are lackluster numbers against a team that’s allowed multiple 300-yard passers so far this season.
So where does Tennessee come into the picture?
Well, just take a look at Vols quarterback Joe Milton’s stat line on Saturday in Tennessee’s 66-24 win against Missouri.
Milton, who serves as the primary backup to Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker, completed all three of his pass attempts against Mizzou for 105 yards and a touchdown.
The former Michigan quarterback only played two series against Missouri.
Kentucky played one of the worst defenses in the SEC and Levis looked more like an undrafted free agent than a first-round pick.
The Vols, meanwhile, played one of the best defenses in the SEC and their backup quarterback who came into the game late outperformed Levis.
I think that pretty much speaks for itself.
A couple of weeks ago, before playing Tennessee, Levis appeared to take a shot at the Vols’ offense when he said throwing 80-yard touchdown passes isn’t “real football”.
I guess his definition of “real football” is a little different than mine.
