KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WBIR) -- Tennessee senior Rajion Neal is only 10 yards away from 1,000 rushing yards this year.

Neal is part of a Vols offense that has 2,043 rushing yards this season. It marks the first time since 2009, and the third time since 2000, that a Tennessee offense has eclipsed 2,000 rushing yards.

"It's exciting," Neal said. "I think it's a big privilege to be a back in this league and accomplish a goal like that. I've had a lot of help from my guys on the perimeter. Definitely the guys up front. It's something that we're all looking forward to. It's on the front of our minds. We're hungry for it and we can't wait."
