Tennessee is 3-of-13 in fourth down attempts during the 2023 season.

The Vols were 0-for-3 in fourth down attempts in its 34-20 loss at Alabama during Week 8.

Third-year Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel met with media on Monday and discussed the Vols’ in fourth down situations.

“At the end of the day, coaches and players have to be better in those situations,” Heupel said. “We’ve got to go pick up the first down. Saw two critical fourth downs that we didn’t pick up.

“At the end of the day, we have to find a way to pick up the first down. We have used a lot of different formations. We have been under center, in the gun, we’ve used it all. We have to find a way to pick it up in those two critical situations.”
