Not much on game day has changed outside Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium.
Inside, though, it’s quite a bit different.
Ten times in the 13 seasons from 1995-2007, the Volunteers finished in the top 25. But they haven’t been ranked since opening the season No. 18 in 2008. In the opener that season, they lost to UCLA and disappeared from the polls. And after taking a 48-13 spanking from Oregon last week, there’s no sign that the Volunteers will be returning any time soon.
