KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tyler Bray threw for 293 yards and three touchdowns as Tennessee beat Montana 42-16 in the season opener for both teams on Saturday night.
Justin Hunter grabbed six receptions for 146 yards, and Da'Rick Rogers had 100 yards on five catches to become the Volunteers' first pair to each have more than 100 yards receiving in a single game since 2007. Both players had a touchdown catch.
Bray connected with Rogers on a flea-flicker play for a 47-yard touchdown to put the Vols up 7-0 with 12:47 to go in the first quarter, and they never trailed. On the third & 7 at the Vols 19 on the following drive, Bray hit Hunter around midfield, and Hunter outran defenders the rest of the way for an 81-yard touchdown play.
Bray finished 17 of 24 with no interceptions.
The Grizzlies' Jordan Johnson was 19 of 36 for 226 yards, one touchdown and an interception.
