College football fans impressed by Tennessee's dominant first half against South Carolina
Tennessee couldn’t have gotten off to a much better start on Saturday afternoon at Neyland Stadium.
The Vols scored 4 first-quarter touchdowns — all of which came courtesy of redshirt senior quarterback Hendon Hooker — while getting off to a dominant start against South Carolina. Hooker threw 3 TD passes and ran for another, as Tennessee went on to have a 38-7 lead at the half.
On the other side, the Vols’ defense forced a pair of turnovers, as the Gamecocks struggled while trying to stay in the game. It seems like Tennessee is well on its way to its first winning streak of the year.
Here’s some of the reaction from social media to the Vols’ impressive start in Knoxville:

It is so fun to watch the Vols run a modern offense and execute it dang near to perfection

The Vols clearly need the black unis every week from here on out.

The Josh Heupel hire has worked wonders for the Tennessee offense. Every Vols possession has felt like automatic points for the last two weeks.

I’m not saying the SEC East is in play, but I’m also not going to lie and say it isn’t

Probably one of the most dominating Vols performances I’ve ever see up to this point in the game
