In September of 2005, a crestfallen QB came into a game trailing 21-0, and lead one of the greatest comebacks in UT history. A week after losing his starting job, Rick Clausen rescued the Vols by going 21-32 for 196 yards and 1 touchdown (ran for a 2nd) in the 30-27 OT win at LSU!

In 1976, Andy Spiva had one of the greatest single seasons in college football history. Spiva collected 194 total tackles for the 6-5 Vols. Spiva is also the SEC career leader in total tackles with 547 and was a 2X All-SEC linebacker. Before his NFL career took off, Spiva was killed in a car crash in Atlanta.

In 2004, UT started 3 different QB’s and had to rely on a strong run game to finish 10-3 and a berth in the SECCG. The Vols had a special backfield, with two backs rushing for over 1,000 yards. Gerald Riggs, Jr, from Chattanooga Red Bank, was the leading rusher with 1,107 yards and 6 TDs on 193 carries.
