Vols score first touchdown in 15 quarters

Ty Chandler burst through the Kentucky defense to give the Vols their first touchdown in nearly four games.

The streak is dead.

After going 15 quarters without scoring a touchdown, the Tennessee Vols' offense finally broke through in the second quarter against Kentucky in Lexington on Saturday.

Ty Chandler burst through the Wildcat's defense on the 1-yard line to put the Vols down 14-13 at the time.

The Vols had threatened to score earlier in the game; Chandler broke for an 80 yard run in the first quarter and crossed the goal line, but the play was called back on a holding penalty assessed to Josh Smith.

The Vols' first touchdown in nearly four games came with some drama; the previous play, Chandler had picked up a 13-yard gain and appeared to have crossed the goal line, but his knee was down at the one-yard line. Video review forced the Vols to run another play from the one-yard line, but they had no problem this time.

Chandler tacked on a second touchdown toward the end of the first half, trimming the Vols' deficit to one in a 20-21 game.
