As the 15th Ranked Tennessee Vols get set to head west to face in-state rival Memphis Saturday, UT Coach Phil Fulmer says he's making a change in his starting backfield.
Looking to spark his rushing attack, Fulmer will start Tailback LaMarcus Coker against the Tigers
Coker had 8-carries for 46-yards, including this 89-yard romp for a touchdown last week vs Marshall.
He started the season behind Arian Foster and Montario Hardesty....
Foster has been out with a sprained ankle..
Hardesty started last week.
Both Hardesty and Coker are Redshirt Freshmen.
Fulmer's also changing starting Centers..
Redshirt Freshman Josh McNeil takes over for Michael Frogg, a former Walkon.
