In 1980, the Vols struggled to a 5-6 record. The biggest thing about that season was the 42-0 beating the Vols gave #18 Auburn. It was the first victory in the state of Alabama since 1969. Terry Daniels only rushed for 363 yards for the season, but he had his best game vs Auburn with 21 carries for 125 yards.

Tennessee was littered with stud WR’s during the 70’s and 80’s and earned the nickname “WR U.” During those years, there wasn’t a better one than Tim McGee. An All-American in ‘85, McGee left Knoxville as the all time leader in career receptions (123), yards (2,042) and touchdowns (15).
McGee went on to a successful NFL career with the Bengals and Washington.

In 1968, the Vols finished the regular season with an 8-1-1 record, thanks to a balanced offense. The running game was led by Richmond Flowers and fullback Richard Pickens. Pickens was named All-SEC and led UT with 736 yards. One of Pickens best games in ‘68, was his 16 carries for 122 yards in the 31-0 victory over Ole Miss.

In 1988, the Vols couldn’t win and Duncan Stewart couldn’t get off a billboard. After starting 0-6, UT had won 3 consecutive games when the traveled to Kentucky. Jeff Francis was named national back of the week, but what kept Kentucky from getting any real momentum, was the rushing of Greg Amsler. Amsler had 31 carries for 121 yards in the 28-24 victory.

In the 2016 Music City Bowl, Josh Dobbs lit it up in his final game as a Vol. He rushed for over 100 yards and threw for almost 300 yards. Josh Malone caught 5 of his passes for 120 yards and a 59 yard touchdown in the Vols 38-24 victory over Nebraska!

@peaygolf I have a question. If you posted 121 days on Saturday, and nothing on Sunday, than should it be 119 today? No big deal. I saw Saturday, but not Sundays countdown. Am I correct? Or did I read that wrong? Asking for a friend.👍👍
