Tennessee wore black and orange uniforms on a Saturday in October, fitting for a team that has been exorcising its demons in recent weeks.

For the second-straight week, the Vols offense shot out to a commanding lead en route to a 45-20 SEC East win over South Carolina at Neyland Stadium.

It may not have been Alabama or Georgia, but Tennessee (4-2, 2-1 SEC), donning black uniforms for the first time since 2009, showcased its ability to score quick and often against a struggling Gamecocks (3-3, 0-3 SEC) team, something the program had struggled to do itself against the league’s middle-of-the-pack teams for the last decade.
