2 for 1

On September 9,1995, Joey Kent had 6 receptions for 110 yrds and 1TD. On October 12, 1996, Kent had 7 receptions for 110 yrds and 1TD. Each game was versus Georgia and each was a Vols victory!

“Top this.”

That was a good one.

In 1997 Peerless Price went for 110 yards and 1 TD on 6 catches in the win over North Western.

I couldn’t top your’s, but it is fun trying.

On September 27, 1975, All American Larry Seivers had 6 receptions for 109 yrds and 2TDs in the Vols 21-17 home victory over Auburn. Seivers was named the Southeast player of the week by the AP and UPI.

I was there in the old upper deck student section. It was glorious, the Vols defeating Auburn early in the season. Fans were hopeful. Tennessee would defeat LSU before getting hammered by Bama in Birmingham, then would come the debacle and shame of North Texas. The Vols would lose their final home game to Vandy. I don't remember how many moving vans were sent to Bill Battle's home over the course of the season, but I think it was three or more.

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE VOL!
On September 29, 1979, Jimmy Streater was 12-20 for 152 yrds passing and a TD. But my favorite part of being in the stands for that game was watching the “Sylva Streak” run for 106 yrds and 2TDs, in the Vols 35-17 victory over Auburn. A then Neyland Stadium record crowd of 85,936 saw Streater dismantle the Tigers.

The 1905 Tennessee Vols went winless in the SIAA, but will always be remembered for one specific game. On October 7, 1905, the Vols defeated American Temperance University by the score of 104-0......the largest margin of victory in Vols history. Sam Parker and Roscoe “Piggy” Word were two stars for the Vols. ATU was founded in 1893 in Harriman, TN and closed in 1908.

On January 1, 1986, the “Sugar Vols” defeated Miami 35-7 in one of the greatest games in UT history. Jeff Powell was one of the many heroes that night. Powell had 11 carries for 102 yrds, including an amazing 60 TD that will live in the hearts of all Vols fans forever.

On September 16, 1972, the Vols played #6 Penn St in the first night game in Tennessee history. Under the lights, a record crowd of over 72,000 watched Haskel Stanback rush for 101 yrds and 3TDs in a 28-21 victory. Joe Paterno had threatened to get out of the game if it were played in the mid day heat of September.......enter night games in Neyland.
