66 Days!

It was one of the more iconic scores in Neyland Stadium and it happened in 1992 as Tennessee defeated Florida 31-14. Mose Phillips caught a screen pass from Heath Shuler and went 66 yards for the touchdown. After high-stepping through the standing water at the goal line, Phillips circled the back of the end zone, stepped back onto the checkerboards in front of the goal post and stopped to look at his wrist. Phillips made sure everyone knew it was about time. "Touchdown Big Orange," John Ward shouted on the Vol Network radio broadcast, "in the downpour!"

Ignore the 21 Days until, only place I could find the scoring clip.

I beleive it was this game that was used as one of the settings in the old show Dragnet. Friday and Gannon were desperately trying to locate a veterinarian that was in attendance.
