In studying game video of the Vols football team this season over the open week, Erik Ainge assembled some numbers on Tennessee’s passing game, specifically who UT has targeted in the passing game and with what kind of success.

The stats include wide receivers, tight ends and running backs focusing on targets for the Top 7 receivers..

Those numbers from Erik are below followed by his discussion about what it all means in The Erik Ainge Show podcast from Wednesday morning’s show.

You can listen to Erik Ainge and Brian Rice on 99.1 The Sports Animal weekdays from 9am to Noon ET.
