120 days.........

I picked 2. Couldn’t decide. I like the old ones, but 1998 is just too good to pass up.

On December 5, 1998, Travis Henry had 26 carries for 120 yrds in UTs 24-14 victory over Mississippi State in the SECCG. F74B244A-F73A-4C08-BC88-7148285F7714.png
On October 5,1955, Johnny Majors had 120 yrds rushing in the Vols 13-0 win over Chattanooga. 34BE34C6-ECC3-4C3D-80AF-7C128F7E4697.png

118 days..........

In 1959, Jim Cartwright had 4 interceptions with 118 return yrds and 2TDS. One of those interceptions was his 59 yrd TD return vs #1 ranked LSU. His TD tied the game at 7-7. UT would go on to win a 14-13 Homecoming thriller with a stopped 2pt conversation of Heisman winner Billy Cannon.

113 days........

On October 15, 1983, Johnnie Jones carried the ball 14 times for 113 yrds and a game winning 66 yrd TD with 3 minuets left to secure a 41-34 victory over #10 Alabama in Birmingham. Bama claims Jones had 112 yrds. Either way, his run will go down in Vols lore as one of the the most famous TDs in UT history.

Recent, but was too nice to pass up.

On September 24, 2016, Jauan Jennings caught only three passes, but they covered 111 yrds and a TD in UT’s 38-28 victory over Florida. Jennings 67 yrd td gave the Vols a lead they would never relinquish and end an 11 year losing streak to UF.

My expecting wife and I were at the game. The good luck baby initials are VOL. She is a Vol Baby.
