KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee is undefeated but still must deal with some major losses as it heads into Southeastern Conference competition.Joshua Dobbs threw a pair of 20-yard touchdown passes to Josh Malone and ran for a third score as the 15th-ranked Volunteers overcame injuries and a suspension to hold off pesky Ohio 28-19 on Saturday.The Volunteers, who have won nine straight games over the last two years, now must wait and see how healthy theyll be heading into next weeks SEC opener with No. 23 Florida.Were decimated right now with injuries, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.Tennessee (3-0) played Saturday without four starters -- three were injured and defensive back Malik Foreman was suspended for a violation of team rules. During the first half, the Vols also lost two team captains to injuries -- cornerback Cam Sutton and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin.When those two went down, we all got together as a defense and we were determined we were going to win this game for those two, linebacker Cortez McDowell said.Jones said Sutton would be out an extended period of time, though the nature of the four-year starters injury wasnt specified. Jones was optimistic Reeves-Maybin could return from his shoulder injury as early as next week but said the linebackers status remained uncertain.Tennessee also is waiting to learn how soon linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr., defensive end LaTroy Lewis, receiver Josh Smith can return from injuries that sidelined them Saturday. Their absences resulted in featured roles for backups such as former walk-on linebacker Colton Jumper and freshman cornerback Baylen Buchanan.Ohio had its own injury issues. The Bobcats made the trip without injured running backs Maleek Irons and A.J. Ouellette. Running back Dorian Brown got hurt during the game.Theyve got a good football team, Ohio coach Frank Solich said of Tennessee. Theyre very athletic and they played hard. All in all it was good football game. We just kind of ran out of bodies.Tennessee scored 38 seconds into the game on the first TD pass from Dobbs to Malone. The Vols continued to lead the rest of the way, though Ohio stayed close throughout.Ohio, a 27-point underdog, was within 21-19 when Dobbs and Malone connected again with 11:07 left in the game. Ohio (1-2) wouldnt threaten again.Malone has caught four of Dobbs six touchdown passes this season.Ohios Louie Zervos was 4 of 4 on field-goal attempts and Sebastian Smith caught nine passes for 156 yards.THE TAKEAWAYOhio: The Bobcats have never beaten a Top 25 team but had a real chance to pull off a history-making victory if theyd capitalized on opportunities. Ohio didnt recover any of Tennessees five fumbles, and the Bobcats offense continually settled for short field-goal attempts rather than reaching the end zone. The failure to finish drives has been a recurring problem for Ohio. Zervos is 13 of 14 on field-goal attempts.Tennessee: The Vols won but made plenty of mistakes they cant afford to repeat once SEC play starts. Not only did they fumble five times, they also committed nine penalties.The penalties are inexcusable. The balls on the ground are inexcusable. Im pulling my hair out, Jones said.POLL IMPLICATIONSTennessees second lackluster effort likely will cause the Vols to drop a few spots. Tennessee opened with a 20-13 overtime victory over 20 1/2-point underdog Appalachian State.OFFENSIVE LINE SHUFFLETennessee altered its offensive line by having sophomore Jack Jones replace redshirt freshman Drew Richmond with three other players switching positions.UP NEXTOhio hosts Football Championship program Gardner-Webb in its last game before opening Mid-American Conference play.Tennessee hosts No. 23 Florida, which has beaten the Vols 11 straight times.---Online: AP College Football website www.collegefootball.ap.orgKerryon Johnson Womens Jersey .

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Chris Buescher remained in position to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup.Barely.Buescher felt fortunate to finish 35th on Sunday in the NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway after dealing with engine problems, and he managed to stay in 30th place in the Cup standings. As long as he stays in the top 30, hell be in the Chase thanks to his victory at Pocono earlier this month.Buescher leads David Ragan by seven points for the No. 30 spot.It definitely could have been a lot worse, Buescher said. If we would have had a DNF we would have lost another five points and been right on the bubble. Unfortunately, we were too many laps down to make up anything. The way the race played out there were no wave-around opportunities, hardly any lucky dogs with those little cautions. It was kind of a wild day.Buescher needs to stay in the top 30 for two more races.dddddddddddd Then the Chase begins. He was 13 points ahead of Ragan before this race.Buescher started 21st at Michigan, but just four laps into Sundays race, he radioed his team of potential engine problems. By the 20th lap, he was sitting in last place.His crew repeatedly opened the hood of his car and replaced spark plugs.I know it isnt fun opening a hood of a race car that is as hot as it is and trying to work on it, he said. Kudos to my guys for keeping their heads down and working at it and getting it fixed. Usually when you have engine trouble you are along for the ride. It ended up being something a little bit more simple than I guess we originally figured. ' ' '
