A newly Derek Dooley-free Tennessee had its way with Kentucky in today's Battle for the Barrel, and even Volunteers mascot Smokey got into the game. UT's bluetick coonhound made a run for Kentucky kicker Craig McIntosh, nipping at his leg but not causing any damage—indeed, McIntosh would go on to kick a field goal a few minutes later. It turned out to be one that would only make a small dent in in a large Tennessee advantage. [SECN]
