Vols' Pressure Isn't Producing Many Sacks So Far

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's pass rushers believe they're doing a decent job of harassing quarterbacks this season, but they're often frustrating themselves in the process.

The Volunteers (2-1) have produced just four sacks, which puts them in a three-way tie for last place in the Southeastern Conference. Nobody on the roster has delivered more than one sack. They failed to sack Florida's Jeff Driskel at all last week in a 37-20 loss to the Gators.

Tennessee switched schemes and coordinators in the offseason, but the Vols are on the exact same pace as last year, when they recorded 16 sacks in 12 games to rank 11th in the SEC.

Tennessee will get plenty of chances to increase those totals Saturday against Akron, which is tied for second nationally with 55.7 passes per game.
