The team also lost to SC and Kentucky (just their second loss to the Wildcats in 33 years) before getting a non-conference respite against Southern Miss.
ESPN reported that defensive line coach Brady Hoke - a former head coach at Ball State, San Diego State and MI - will serve as the interim for the rest of the season.

Tennessee tied the Missouri game with 1:15 left in the first half on a 19-yard pass from freshman quarterback Will McBride to tight end Ethan Wolf.
