Rashaan Gaulden is doing his best to be remembered for his play on the field, and not the incident he had to apologize for at Alabama.
The Tennessee defensive back leads Power 5 teams with the lowest amount of yards allowed, 0.24, per snap in coverage for draft-eligible cornerbacks, according to Pro Football Focus.
Gaulden is third on the team with 57 tackles, has one interception, 3.5 tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups.
He had a career-high 10 tackles against Florida earlier this season. He also had 10 tackles against South Carolina. His fumble recovery Saturday against Southern Miss was his third fumble in as many games. It led to a John Kelly touchdown and gave the Vols a 24-3 lead.
