Despite beating Utah State 38-7 Sunday night, head coach Butch Jones said his team still has a lot to improve upon.

Mainly in the run game where the Vols averaged just 2.8 yards per carry rushing for only 110 yards on 39 carries.

Despite having 10 new faces on the offensive side of the ball, Jones stressed the importance of efficient running and that everyone has room to improve.

“It’s not just the offensive line it may be the tight end on a combination block it may be the back taking his proper read it may be the quarterback keeping it so there was just a lot of single breakdown’s and we’re working to get that corrected,” said Jones.

The Vols will try and make those adjustments in practice this week before hosting Arkansas State Saturday at Neyland.
