Plenty of hype surrounded Tennessee’s offensive line ahead of this season.

On Saturday against Missouri, the Volunteers proved it might be warranted as they ran over the Tigers at Neyland Stadium en route to a 35-12 win — their eighth straight victory.
The evidence of the offensive line’s impact against the Tigers (0-2) was everywhere.

The Vols (2-0) recorded 422 offensive yards, 232 of which were rushing, and not a single Tennessee running back had a run for negative yardage.
