Tennessee (3-2, 1-1 SEC) defeated Missouri, 62-24, in Week 5.

Six Vols recorded receptions against the Tigers.

Wide receivers Velus Jones Jr. (7), Cedric Tillman (4), JaVonta Payton (1), tight ends Princeton Fant (1) and Jacob Warren (1), along with running back Len’Neth Whitehead (1) recorded receptions in the contest.

First-year Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel met with media Monday and discussed the Vols’ receiver rotation and positioning.

“A lot of the rotation was just based on circumstances of the game and how the game ended up playing out,” Heupel said of the Missouri game. “I believe that we have depth and have the ability to play multiple guys at multiple spots.

“Velus getting him inside was an opportunity to get him more touches. Thought he did a really good job inside. He did good job on our pass game, understanding where he needed to be. Thought he did a good job on a couple option routes and did a really good job with the ball in his hands.”
