KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Chris Webber Jersey . -- The unexpected departure of running back Jalen Hurd hasnt hindered Tennessees rushing attack.In its first two games since Hurd left the team, Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) has averaged 276.5 yards rushing per game and 8.4 yards per carry. Tennessees robust rushing attack has compensated for the defenses recent inability to stop the run heading into Saturdays game with Missouri (3-7, 1-5).Quarterback Joshua Dobbs, Alvin Kamara and John Kelly each rushed for over 90 yards last week in a 49-36 victory over Kentucky.Me and Alvin just open up so much for the offense, Kelly said after the Kentucky game. There is so much that we have to offer for our offense so we are just taking advantage of the opportunities, and we keep the defense on their heels every time we are out there.Theyve shown that Tennessees backfield still has plenty of firepower even without Hurd.Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced two days after a stunning 24-21 loss at South Carolina that Hurd intended to transfer . Hurd had rushed for a team-high 451 yards at the time of his exit after gaining 899 yards in 2014 and 1,288 yards in 2015. Hurd was just 440 yards shy of the Tennessee career rushing record owned by Travis Henry.Hurds departure expanded Kellys role in the offense, and the sophomore from Detroit has made the most of the opportunity. Kelly has rushed for at least 94 yards in each of Tennessees last three games and is averaging 7.3 yards per carry this season.He runs with passion, and he wants to score every time he touches the ball, Kamara said.Kamara returned to action last week after missing two games with a knee injury, and Tennessee responded by rushing for 376 yards and averaging over 9 yards per carry against Kentucky. That 376-yard output was Tennessees highest single-game rushing total since a 399-yard performance against Bowling Green in its 2015 season opener.The Vols were just six yards away from having three 100-yard rushers in a single game for the first time since 1991. Dobbs rushed for 147 yards, Kamara gained 128 yards and Kelly had 94 yards.Ive always had great belief in all of our backs, Alvin and John and even if we have to go beyond that, offensive coordinator Mike DeBord said. We feel good with our backs and feel we have really good running backs. Theyve all got something different, which is good. They all run hard, too. The other thing I like is theyre hitting the holes really quick now.Tennessee has needed to run this ball this well because its defense has been unable to stop the run.In its last four games against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents, Tennessee has given up 340.8 yards rushing per game and 6.7 yards per carry. Kentucky rushed for 443 yards against Tennessee, which was just three yards shy of the Wildcats single-game school record and represented the third-highest total ever allowed by the Vols.Tennessees front seven on defense has been hurt by season-ending injuries to defensive tackles Kahlil McKenzie and Shy Tuttle and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin as well as the dismissal of tackle Danny OBrien. Defensive end Corey Vereen noted the Vols also have missed plenty of tackles the last few games.Weve just got to all do our jobs and not try to do too much, defensive back Malik Foreman said. The coaches have got a good scheme laid out for us. I feel if we just all do our jobs and stay within the defense, well be fine.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee ;JaKarr Sampson Jersey .

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Tamarkuz was fed a steady diet of one-turn races throughout his career, but in his 20th and perhaps final career start, he successfully stretched out around two turns to win the $1 million Breeders Cup Dirt Mile on Friday at Santa Anita, scoring an 11-1 upset over the likes of Dortmund, Gun Runner, and Runhappy.The win was his first in a Grade 1 race, an important milestone for a 6-year-old horse owned by Sheikh Hamdans Shadwell Stable, where he will go to stud, perhaps quite soon. Though his connections wouldnt yet say he was retired, they acknowledged that this win will take Tamarkuz to a new level when we take him home, said Joe DeSantis, the assistant racing manager for Shadwell.Tamarkuz was always intended for the Dirt Mile. Shadwell also had pre-entered Frosted in the Dirt Mile, as well as the Classic, and ended up putting him in the Classic on Saturday. Both are trained by Kiaran McLaughlin.Now all the media knows why Frosted is running in the Classic. We knew we had a horse who would win the Dirt Mile, McLaughlin said, laughing.Tamarkuz ($25.80), with Mike Smith aboard, rallied into a hot pace and drew away for a 3-1/2-length victory in the two-turn mile. Gun Runner held on for second by a neck over Accelerate.The races disappointments were its early leaders. Dortmund, sent off at 3-5, pressed the pace of Runhappy but tired in the lane and was fourth. Runhappy, last years champion male sprinter, set a quick pace for a half-mile but began a steady fade on the final turn and finished eighth in the nine-horse field, his second straight disappointing race since returning from a nine-month layoff.Tamarkuz was fractious behind the gate before the start, then raced wide while toward the rear for the first part of the race. The pace, though, was to his liking -- an opening quarter in 22. Cheap Kings Jerseys Authentic. 45 seconds, a half in 45.37. He closed steadily at the weary front-runners, got the lead at midstretch and was never in danger thereafter. He completed one mile on the fast main track in 1:35.72.This is so satisfying, DeSantis said. This is what he needed -- a two-turn race with speed.Gun Runner pressed the pace while three wide, got the best of Dortmund and Runhappy, but could not stave off Tamarkuz. Dortmund seemed to show the effects of three straight losses against California Chrome prior to this race.Tamarkuz, by Speightstown, was bred in Kentucky by John Gunther, was purchased as a yearling for $325,000 by Shadwell, and began his career in Britain before heading to Dubai and then last year to the United States. In six prior starts for McLaughlin, he had never won, but in his last two starts, he had finished second in the seven-furlong Forego to A. P. Indian and second in the one-turn-mile Kelso to Anchor Down.Hed been second, fourth, a little unlucky, McLaughlin said. We knew he had potential.We thought he was sitting on a big effort, DeSantis said.The victory was the third in a Breeders Cup race for McLaughlin, all with horses owned by Shadwell.Its a great honor. Its fabulous to be part of that team, McLaughlin said.Tamarkuz has now won eight times in 20 starts, and the $550,000 he earned on Friday increased his career earnings to $1,840,444.Hes very well balanced. He should make a nice stallion, McLaughlin said.DeSantis said his boss, Rick Nichols, and Sheikh Hamdan would decide whether Tamarkuz races again. If this was his final start, it was quite the curtain call. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
