KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Alden Hill rushed for 101 yards on 18 carries Saturday as defense dominated an Orange & White Game that featured a crowd of 61,076, the second-largest total ever for a Tennessee spring game.

The game matched the offense against the defense, with the defense representing the Orange team and the offense making up the White team. The Orange team won the game 95-71 under a complicated scoring system that awarded points to each unit for big achievements.

Worley went 8 of 18 for 123 yards with one touchdown and one interception, while Nathan Peterman was 9 of 23 for 98 yards. Both quarterbacks are trying to replace Tyler Bray, who bypassed his senior season to enter the draft.

Corey Vereen recorded four sacks.

The lone touchdowns of the game came on a 58-yard completion from Worley to Cody Blanc and a 62-yard interception return by walk-on defensive back Max Arnold.
