Knoxville, Tenn. • Any remaining questions about quarterback Chuckie Keeton's ability to move, run and scramble after recovering from knee surgery were answered Sunday night.
Then again, Keeton's repeated demonstration of those abilities was one of Utah State's problems in a 38-7 loss to Tennessee at Neyland Stadium.
The Volunteers hounded Keeton in exploiting USU's offensive line, sacking him only once but forcing him into several hurried, errant throws and picking off two passes.
Promoted by USU as a Heisman Trophy candidate, Keeton completed 18 of 35 passes for 144 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 12 net yards. In contrast, Tennessee's Justin Worley was 27 of 38 for 273 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions.
