KNOXVILLE (P) - Justin Coleman and Cameron Sutton returned interceptions for touchdowns Saturday as Tennessee scored after each of Western Kentucky's five first-quarter turnovers in a 52-20 victory.

Western Kentucky (1-1) turned the ball over five times in a span of six snaps during the first quarter, turning an early 3-0 lead into a 31-3 deficit.

The Football Bowl Subdivision record for consecutive turnovers forced by a defense is seven straight series. Florida State had four fumbles and three interceptions in its first seven possessions of a 42-13 loss to Florida on Oct. 7, 1972.

Western Kentucky quarterback Brandon Doughty threw five interceptions, including Coleman's 23-yard touchdown return and Sutton's 36-yard score. Brian Randolph picked off two Doughty passes in the end zone.

Marlin Lane rushed for 97 yards and one touchdown for Tennessee (2-0). Rajion Neal ran for 74 yards and three touchdowns.

Western Kentucky's Antonio Anderson rushed for 111 yards.
