KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — There was plenty to like about the way Tennessee’s running game sliced through the defense, but there were enough turnovers to leave coach Butch Jones not entirely pleased the effort on either side of the ball.

The defense, Jones said, needs to develop a line-of-scrimmage mentality to compete in the SEC.

At one point, he shouted to the defense (and specifically the line), “What happens when Alabama comes in here and runs the ball?”
