Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) -- Cordarrelle Patterson scored two first-quarter touchdowns -- one a 41-yard catch, the second a 67-yard run -- and Tennessee beat North Carolina State 35-21 on Friday night in the opening game for both teams.

Patterson, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver who transferred to from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, played like a star in his Tennessee debut. Patterson had six catches for 93 yards as the Vols won the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game.

Tennessee (1-0) scored 16 points on two touchdowns and a safety in a span of 38 seconds late in the first quarter.

Mike Glennon threw four interceptions with one touchdown for North Carolina State (0-1).
