In 2007, Erik Ainge had one of the greatest seasons in UT history. He threw for 3,522 yrds and 31 TDs and helped lead the Vols to the SEC Championship game and a Outback Bowl victory over Wisconsin. In the Outback Bowl, Ainge tossed a 31 yrd TD to Brad Cottam to secure the 21-17 victory.

I peek in on this thread every year, its my favorite VN thread. It's always so cool to read some UT history while waiting for the season to begin. Thanks to everyone that has contributed, this years thread has been as awesome as ever!
I’ve said it several times, but this has been a lot of fun. Researching has been the best part. Picking which one to use is the hard part.

I had another"28"....but when I remembered the winning streak being snapped and having so many UM friends....I had to use that one. That was a fun game to see in person.

On November 15, 1941, Tennessee traveled to play Boston College @ Fenway Park in a rematch of the Sugar Bowl. With the game tied at 7-7, B.C. qb, Boudreau threw a pass that was intercepted by the Vols Billy Gold. He returned the interception 26 yards to the 3 yrd line. With 90 seconds left, Bobby Cifers scored to give the Vols a 14-7 victory.
