(TSX / STATS) -- Tennessee dismissed Jauan Jennings from the team after the wide receiver ripped the coaching staff in a profanity-laced video over social media.

"Representing the University of Tennessee football program is a privilege," Volunteers interim coach Brady Hoke said in a statement, per the Tennessean. Hoke also said the decision to dismiss Jennings from the team was made with athletic director John Currie.

Jennings has been sidelined since dislocating his wrist in a season-opening 42-41 double-overtime win against Georgia Tech. He went to practice on Wednesday and hoped to play versus Vanderbilt (4-7, 0-7 SEC) on Saturday.

Miami puts 15-game run on line at Pitt

(TSX / STATS) -- Every time Miami ventures north of the Georgia-Florida line in November, it seems mandatory that the Hurricanes be forced to address the issue of weather and how they are going to cope with the "cold."

With a temperature expected to be in the 40s, however, that doesn't appear to be much of a problem when the Hurricanes (10-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) play at Pittsburgh (4-7, 2-5) this time.
