Two careers ended on a high note in Nashville on Friday night as Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs set a Music City Bowl record, while defensive end Derek Barnett set an all-time school record by breaking a mark set by a gridiron legend. Along the way, the Volunteers capped a somewhat disappointing season with a 38-24 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, avenging bowl losses against the Big Red in their last two meetings.Dobbs ended his career in orange with three rushing TDs, which is a Music City Bowl record. His MVP performance caps the senior’s time in Knoxville where he passed for over 6,800 yards, threw for 52 touchdowns and added 29 rushing touchdowns.Meanwhile Barnett, who is expected to enter the NFL draft given his high draft stock, cemented his place in history as he broke the all-time Tennessee Vol sack record with his sack of the Nebraska quarterback in the fourth quarter, eclipsing the mark set by Hall of Famer Reggie White with his 33rd career sack.
