Tennessee's Alex Walls on his five field goals: "It's the same with me as the rest of the team. I'd rather get touchdowns than field goals. I'm proud, but I can't be too proud about not coming out with a win."

Linebacker Eric Westmoreland: "It hurts to lose any game. Coming into the game, we had a good plan on both sides of the ball."

Tailback Travis Henry: "It's very tough playing our hearts out and not coming away with the victory."

Coach Phil Fulmer on the number of times in the red zone: "We were down there five, six times. It was just tough, tough, tough, tough. We would have gone for it on the fourth and 1 had the ball not come out on the quarterback sneak and ended up fourth and 3. Another time, we had a good plan for a fake, and the quarterback was sacked."

Quarterback A.J. Suggs: "Three points isn't bad, but we need to work on getting seven. We just had a few miscues and you can't have those."

Fulmer on his relationship with Florida coach Steve Spurrier: "I appreciate Coach Spurrier's comments at midfield. Everybody wants to make a big deal out of it, out of our rivalry, and we do have very competitive rivalry, but he is a class guy."

Receiver Cedrick Wilson: "We beat those guys up and down the field on both sides of the ball. We didn't get the victory. Those guys are good and very experienced. It was tough on us."

Suggs on throwing an interception returned for a touchdown: "It was tough. Every quarterback throws interceptions. Those who can move and get back in the huddle and act like nothing happened are the ones that usually have success."

Andre Lott on playing Florida: "It's always tense against Florida, being a good team like that and a rival. You always have to play it as an intense game and go out there and execute."
