Tennessee beats Kentucky, 27-14

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Joshua Dobbs threw two touchdown passes and ran 40 yards for another, and Tennessee broke a four-game losing streak with a 27-14 over rival Kentucky on Saturday night.
    
The Volunteers (5-7, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) bounced back from their heartbreaking last-minute loss to Vanderbilt by scoring first-half touchdowns on long plays en route to their first victory since upsetting South Carolina in October. Tennessee avoided its first eight-loss season in program history and improved to 76-24-9 against the Wildcats.
    
After throwing five interceptions without a touchdown, freshman quarterback Dobbs hit Jason Croom for a 43-yard TD and a 7-yarder to Devrin Young.
    
Tailback Raijon Neal meanwhile capped his senior season with 1,124 yards by rushing for 134 on 20 carries including a 60-yard TD on the game's second play.
    
Kentucky (2-10, 0-8) finished winless in the SEC in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1941-42.
