Sept. 3, 2011 - Tennessee 42, Montana 16

Tennessee's 2011 football season began with the longest weather delay in school history. But lightning and high winds only delayed a first-half offensive deluge as the Vols rolled to a 42-16 victory over Montana in Neyland Stadium.

The Vols jumped out to a 14-point lead early in the first quarter thanks to a couple big plays from sophomore receivers Da'Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter. Both Hunter (146) and Rogers (100) had 100-yard receiving days and Tauren Poole ran for 98 yards and a score. Tyler Bray threw for 293 yards and three TDs.
