I was 8 and remeber the Oregon State game like it was yesterday. 13-13 tie in pouring down rain. Vols score 13 pts in the last 5 mins (all Streater) and a missed PAT to tie.
The Ole Miss game was a release valve for the season's frustrations. Mississippi wasn't much better than the 2-5-1 Vols, but to see Tennessee put a 41-17 drubbing on an SEC team was Bactine to burned Big Orange fans.

142 days...........

In 1961, Tennessee only completed 42 passes for 8 TDs. But, Mike Stratton caught 9 of those passes for 142 yrds and 3TDs.

Stratton would be selected by the Buffalo Bills and became a 6 time AFL All-Star and a member of the Bills Wall of Fame as a linebacker. He had 18 career Ints and 30 sacks.
