Senior linebacker Nick Reveiz led the Vols at LSU with 10 tackles, his 4th consecutive
10-tackle game. Reveiz leads the SEC with 50 tackles this season and also recorded his first career interception in the 4th quarter. Chris Walker leads the front four with 24 tackles (1.5 for loss) this season and is second on the team with four quarterback hurries. Gerald Williams leads the squad with 2.5 sacks and is tied for the team lead with 4 tackles for loss. Prentiss Waggner leads the team with two interceptions, both of which he has returned for TDs.


Matt Simms ranks fifth in the SEC in passing yards per game at 191.4. Simms was
12-for-23 for 121 yards at LSU, including his first career rushing touchdown. Tauren
missed most of the UAB game with a thigh injury but rebounded in the LSU with a 109-yard effort that represented his third 100-yard effort of the year. Poole ranks sixth in the SEC in rushing yards per game at 85.4 and has carried 80 times this season for 427 yards and four TD’s. Denarius Moore leads the team with 16 receptions, 239 yards, and four receiving TDs (five overall).

Demarcus Dobbs has a total of 14 tackles through five games this season, including
two TFLs. Junior OLB Justin Houston’s progression as one the SEC’s dominant pass rushers has continued in 2010. Houston is second in the SEC in sacks (4.0) and tied for fourth in the conference in both tackles for loss (7.5). He exploded for a career-high 10 tackles, including two sacks, and forced a fumble against South Carolina. Senior ILB Akeem Dent has had two straight games with more than 10 tackles after notching a career-high 12 at Colorado. Dent is the team leader in stops with 42. He had the third game of his career with double-digit tackles after finishing with 10 against Mississippi State.


So far in 2010, Drew Butler has averaged 44.3 yards on 22 punts, six that went for
50+. Blair Walsh is now 105 for 105 on PATs in his career. Against Colorado, Walsh
drilled a 20 & a 33 yarder and then missed from 41 yards out, he is now 9 for 10 on the year. So far in 2010, Brando Boykin has 10 kickoff returns totaling 229 yards.

Chad Cunningham had a season-best 47.5-yard average on four punts at LSU, with
two of 50 plus yards and two downed inside the 20 yard line. His 42.8-yard season average ranks fourth in the SEC and 35th nationally. Although he missed Saturday’s game at LSU with a leg injury, Daniel Lincoln remains a perfect 7 for 7 on field goal attempts this season, one short of his Tennessee record to start a season.
