Why Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara needs to be involved for the Vols to win
Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara may be the biggest factor in Saturday’s game against Florida. According to Patrick Murray of WBIR, the Vols are undefeated when Kamara is more involved in their offense.

Tennessee is 7-0 when Kamara scores a touchdown and 5-0 when he has 12 or more offensive touches. All four of the Vols’ losses in 2015 came in games when the running back had 11 or less touches.
Kamara rushed for 698 yards and seven touchdowns on 107 attempts, while also recording 34 receptions for 291 yards and three touchdowns in 2015, his first season at Tennessee.
The former JUCO transfer was limited to 16 yards on six carries and three receptions for 33 yards during the Vols’ 28-27 loss to Florida last season.
