Tennessee has lost the services of freshman Toney Williams from Alpharetta, Georgia for the '09 season. Williams tore his ACL during off season conditioning workouts. He is likely headed for a red-shirt in 2009.

Williams enrolled early at Tennessee in January. The true freshman was impressive in spring drills and the Orange and White Game. In his first scrimmage, he tallied 81 yards on 14 carries and 1 TD.

During the team's second scrimmage, Williams gained 80 yards on 11 attempts. The spring game saw him end his day with 79 yards on 11 rushing attempts, good for a team leading 6 yard average per carry.

Williams ended his first spring in Knoxville with a 6.6 yard per carry rushing average, good for 240 yards and 2 TD scores. A schedule date for surgery has not been announced.

UCLA – Tennessee Kickoff Announced

The kickoff for the UCLA Bruins visit to face Tennessee in Knoxville has been set for a 4:00 PM EST broadcast on ESPN. It is the 15th meeting between the two schools that dates back to a 1965 meeting in Memphis, TN.

The Bruins have played inside Neyland Stadium 7 times, while Tennessee has played in either Los Angeles or Pasadena 6 times during the 44 year time span. The Vols own 7-5-2 edge over UCLA in the series
