Tennessee’s offense was nowhere to be found in the first half of Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt, accumulating just 85 yards and six first downs en route to a 17-0 deficit.

Ty Chandler made sure the Volunteers’ offensive struggles didn’t linger into the second half.

The sophomore running back turned the first play after halftime into a 75-yard score, smartly following his blockers before sprinting down the right sideline to pay dirt.

Chandler’s touchdown run gave a much-needed jolt of energy to a Tennessee team fighting for bowl eligibility. But the Commodores are in the same boat with five wins, making the teams’ regular-season finale quite pressure-packed.

Chandler may need to make a few more plays like that if the Volunteers want to make a bowl game in coach Jeremy Pruitt’s first season.
