GRR: University of Kentucky
Down 20-17 Saturday against Kentucky, the University of Tennessee, after some sustained pressure, got a penalty right in front of the posts.
Kentucky is looking for another conference title and took a big step forward this past weekend with a 40-12 defeat of Alabama.
But UK will get a good challenge in the DIAA SCRC from Tennessee, which defeated DIA Notre Dame 31-12, and who also beat Memphis on the same Saturday. But there’s another challenge lurking.
Ohio State University defeated Lindenwood-Belleville to take the Mooseman 7s at Middle Tennessee State University Saturday.
Tennessee and Alabama will meet next week for the SCRC championship after both won their semifinals this weekend.
The SCRC playoffs begin with Saturday’s semifinals as Tennessee takes on Florida and Alabama hosts Kentucky.
For Tennessee it’s been a tough run, but they emerged 24-22 winners over Kentucky, and 13-10 winners over South Carolina. Slightly less good goalkicking and one mistake here and there and they might be where South Carolina is now, 3-2 and staying home.
