Jarrett Guarantano 39-yard pass to … Tyler Byrd. Yep. Tyler Byrd. Good for him.
#Vols back up two scores with 2:35 left.
Guarantano in for an injured Maurer.
Mississippi State about to put their backup QB in, who is better in the run game.
If you're a Tennessee fan, you know EXACTLY how this one ends.
TYLER BYRD!!!!!!!!!!!!! JARRETT GUARANTANO!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is not a tweet from the 2016 recruiting season
Jeremy Pruitt referred to Jarrett Guarantano as “a sixth-man shooter” last week.
The much-maligned quarterback has played that role with aplomb today, going 6 of 7 for 106 yards and a TD in relief to help lead Vols to 20-10 win.
This is Maurer. Talented, fiery, gutsy, prone to freshman mistakes. Still better than what Tennessee was getting with Guarantano.
Possibly the two most unlikely players connected on that TD for the Vols to (possibly) seal the game.
Guarantano to Tyler Byrd, 39-yard TD
Guarantano hits Tyler Byrd with a short toss that Byrd turns into a 37 yard game clinching touchdown. 20-10, 2:35 left in the game.
Great day for the Vols. So many great stories for a team that’s only experienced lows this year.
- Defense dials up a beauty.
- Guarantano gets some redemption.
- Tyler Byrd, the one-time HS AA who hasn’t seen much meaningful PT in his career, gets the game-sealing TD.
Guarantano to Byrd.
Guarantano 6/7 106 yards & a TD
Big win for the #Vols. Keeps hope “alive” for the second half of the season. Gotta figure they’ll have a decent shot at a bowl at this point.
Ugly. But the WIN is all that matters.
Good for Guarantano.
See you at 11am!
There was no path to the post season without that W today. Pruitt and Co showed me something today. Ansley’s defense looked a lot better. Very gritty win. Proud of Guarantano for coming in and never wavering.
Guarantano just checked off two receivers and went to his safety valve, do you think he learned anything?
Say what you will about Guarantano, but he's given UT exactly what it needed to seal this victory.
Vols 20, MSU 10.
UT defense thrives. Guarantano helps seal victory after Maurer injury.
5 things we learned.
That’s a 20-10 win for the Vols.
Their first SEC victory of the season.
Clutch 4th quarter drive from the offense and Guarantano.
Maurer celebrating and cheering on Guarantano’s touchdown play - great sportsmanship #Vols
Jarrett Guarantano with a third-down completion to Tim Jordan to extend drive.
Then a 39-yard TD pass to Tyler Byrd on a short pass that Byrd turned into a big play.
Vols 20, MSU 10.
Happy for Jarrett Guarantano today! He’s persevered and shown nothing but class and character throughout his career. He’s been a team first guy from Day 1. He deserves this moment! Well done @BroadwayJay2
Love that for Guarantano.
FINAL: #Vols 20, #HailState 10
Defense + Jarrett Guarantano + More Defense = Tennessee victory at Neyland Stadium
