Derrick Henry and the Titans piled up 532 yards in rallying from a 15-point deficit at halftime and 14 points in the final 13:06 of regulation. Henry scored two of his three touchdowns to force overtime, and a maligned defense came through for a 33-30 overtime win in Seattle.

13. Vols hope to fix flaws against Tennessee Tech no matter QB -
