Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 04: Marquez Callaway #1 of the Tennessee Volunteers rushes for a touchdown past A.J.

There were the usual reasons: missed tackles, poor pursuit angles, getting overpowered in the run game and, to Tennessee’s credit, superior playmaking.

Tennessee running back John Kelly, who gained 91 of his 128 rushing yards after halftime, said he could feel a shift with the change in tempo.

The first half was hampered by drops, but quarterback Quinten Dormady turned to wide receiver Marquez Callaway for two of the biggest plays in the game after halftime, a 10-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to cut Tech’s lead to 21-14 and then a 50-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the fourth quarter that kept Tennessee in the game at 28-21 with 11:49 to play.
