I feel like No. 1 is held in higher regard in basketball and hockey. Off the top of my head, Warren Moon is probably the best player in football to ever wear it with Cam Newton probably behind him. It’s not really a “go to” number for football in my eyes. As far as UT Football goes, Leonard Little, Jason Witten and Jayson Swain are probably the most memorable.
No freshman will wear a No. 0 jersey. An NCAA rule change will allow players to wear zero as their uniform number this season. Tennessee has not announced who will be the first player in program history to wear that number.
