Tennessee football coach Josh Heupel on letting up on Missouri: “Absolutely went through my mind”

Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel admitted that he was uncertain how to proceed when the Vols were in scoring position in the waning seconds of the game in a 66-24 win over Missouri on Saturday. Instead of taking a knee, the Vols scored, leading 59-24, with a two-yard run by Dylan Sampson with :36 left on the clock.

“For us, at the end of the day, our twos were in the football game when the ball went down to the one-yard line or whatever it was,” Heupel said during his weekly press conference on Monday. “Absolutely went through my mind. I don’t know what the right thing to do is at that moment. At the end of the day, I let our guys continue to play football.”

The Vols are No. 5 in the College Football Playoff rankings, meaning the extra points could have an effect on their new rankings, which come out on Tuesday. The Vols play at South Carolina on Saturday.
