Let’s hope Maurer’s injury isn’t too serious.The Volunteers are currently beating the Bulldogs 13-3 late in the third quarter. This would be UT’s second win overall and first SEC win of the season.This would be huge for a program trying to revive itself. The Volunteers had a brutal start to the season which included losses to Georgia State and BYU. The Volunteers’ lone win of the season so far came against Chattanooga in week 3.Fans are very excited for Maurer and how he’ll continue to develop. In his first start last week vs. No. 3 Georgia, he threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns.Hopefully, Maurer’s injury isn’t too serious and he can return to game-action next week.
