The Tennessee Volunteers defeated the Missouri Tigers, 62-24, on Oct. 2, as Chuck Cox of the College Football America Yearbook staff covered the game in Columbia, Missouri.
Cox’s photo gallery is on our Facebook page and photos of the game could end up in the 2022 edition of the Yearbook. The photos may also be used by the American Football Coaches Association for its web site, social media and publications.
Tennessee had 683 yards of total offense. Running back Tiyon Evans finished with 156 yards and three touchdowns. He had 107 of those yards in the first quarter.
