Mandatory Credit: Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports Say what you will about Coach Malzahn, but at least his teams go and get the job done against inferior opponents. You can't say the same about Butch Jones and Tennessee. While the Vols may be undefeated, they have struggled against two non-Power 5 schools this season—Appalachian State and Ohio.
