An “SEC” game that starred blunders, turnovers, and penalties ended on a rare stroke of competence as Feleipe Franks connected with Tyrie Cleveland for 63 yards on the game’s final play to earn the Gators a 26-20 win over Tennessee in Gainesville.
Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 24 Tennessee.
Florida Atlantic head football coach Lane Kiffin, the most frequently dunked-on coach in recent college football history, has willingly shared two more stories about times in which he was savagely owned.
The Tennessee Volunteers’ Christian Coleman is in top form as his collegiate season comes to a close. The runner-up in both the 100m and 200m last year, Coleman completely destroyed tonight’s semifinal heat at the NCAA Championships, and then some. But his time was off the charts: a wind-legal 9.82 seconds.
Tennessee wide receiver Josh Smith was arrested last night for domestic assault of his roommate.
Twenty years ago, the NFL draft was marked by one of the most fateful quarterback choices in league history: Peyton Manning’s decision to stay at the University of Tennessee for his senior year. The Jets, who had the No. 1 pick in 1997, are still reeling from the aftershocks. And it all may have been because Bill…
Tennessee scored a big Music City Bowl win over Nebraska tonight, but that wasn’t enough for some Volunteers fans, it seems:
With 10 weeks of college football in the books, now seems like a great time to check in on the SEC East and see who’s going to get stomped by Alabama in the conference title game.
Tennessee almost followed up last week’s Hail Mary-fueled victory by overcoming a three-touchdown second-half deficit in order to defeat Texas A&M in double overtime. “Almost” is the operative word there. The Vols fell behind early and stayed that way for most of the game, hitting a low point by trailing 28-7 just…
This season’s cardiac kids performed magic in College Station again today as Tennessee forced overtime against Texas A & M thanks to forcing a fumble on what could have been a game-sealing play, marching 80 yards for a touchdown in just over a minute, then—we’re guessing here—using mind control to force the Aggies’…
Senior Tennessee defensive lineman Danny O’Brien left the field in College Station on a stretcher today after a fourth-quarter helmet-to-helmet hit.
Tennessee center Dylan Wiesman left today’s game against Texas A&M after a hit to the head left him dazed and unable to leave the field. CBS reported the unpaid senior athlete was “distraught,” but did not give any indications on his health condition.
Josh Dobbs connected with Jauan Jennings for a 43-yard desperation catch on the game’s final play to once again give Tennessee a win it appeared it had no chance of saving after falling behind Georgia 17-0.
A ten-play, 78-yard Tennessee drive went for naught after Jalen Hurd dropped the ball upon being surprised by a hit at the goal line by a Georgia defender. The play preserved a 10-0 Georgia lead—now 17-0—over the inexplicably undefeated Volunteers.
After 11 straight years of losing—including, most recently, back-to-back fourth quarter blown leads—Tennessee finally defeated Florida, this time inviting the Gators to blow a lead of their own.
Good afternoon. Here’s the best, and worst, of today’s College GameDay signs from Knoxville—with some help from SEC Nation:
We all know of Appalachian State for one reason, and as the fates would have it, they played Tennessee nine years to the day of the upset that turned the school into as household a name as any then-FCS program could imagine. App State almost certainly could have earned another myth-making win last night, had their own…
A putrid night of football in Knoxville turned out the Volunteers’ way when Josh Dobbs’s fumble at the goal line in overtime was gathered in by teammate Jalen Hurd, setting up a 20-13 win after the Tennessee defense stopped Appalachian State’s OT series.
Tennessee’s supposed to be good this year—they’re ranked #9 in ESPN’s preseason poll—but their season is off to a slow start as they’ve allowed Appalachian State to jump out to a ten-point first-half lead, thanks here to a 33-yard touchdown catch and run by Marcus Cox. “Holy Toledo!”
