Celebrating over a History of Great Tennessee Football
The Tennessee Volunteers football program (also known as “Vols”), have played football at the collegiate level for 121 seasons since 1891. The team has ranked twelfth winningest team for win-loss percentages with their 873-383-53 record, as well as ninth on by-victories, and second-best on the all-time win/loss list of SEC programs with a 390-253-33 record. The team is best known for being one of the most frequently appearing teams in bowl games in the country including an incredible four Sugar Bowls, three Cotton Bowls, an Orange Bowl, and a Fiesta Bowl. The team has won enough of these important bouts to become the sixth winningest team in all Bowl appearances. The team has also recorded 16 conference championships and six national titles including their most recent national championship in the 1998 season.
This century-old legacy of success and strength has also led to the team recording 464 victories at their home field of Neyland Stadium, which is the best home-field total in college football history for any school in their current home venue. With records like this, is it any wonder that Neyland Stadium has expanded enough to become the fifth-largest stadium in the country with a capacity of 102,455 seats? We didn’t think so either, which is why we know sports fans will enjoy catching games from this celebrated program.
But success isn’t the only thing the Vols history brings, as they have also produced some of the most hotly contested rivalries in the country, including their traditional rival, The Alabama Crimson Tide. Every year, the team battles in what’s called the Third Saturday in October. Alabama currently leads the series with a 56-38-7 record, but with this year’s match-up coming up, who can tell which team will come out on top!
Come to Neyland Stadium and celebrate this historic team by ordering tickets to catch the upcoming home games for the Tennessee Volunteers.
The Players to Watch This Season
After the disappointing 2018 season, The Tennessee Volunteers have worked on their roster to create a stronger roster that will give the program the results they deserve. Sportswriters have noticed that Pruitt’s second season Vols are expected to take a big leap this year and a big part of that will be in the following players to watch this season.
Cornerback Alontae Taylor is going to be a major part of the Vols defense especially with Bryce Thompson’s suspension and Baylen Buchanan being cut from the team. Even being just a sophomore, Taylor represents an intimidating field presence at 6’0’’ and 193 lbs. Last season, Taylor earned his stripes starting in nine games and playing in all 12 with a season record of 40 tackles, one tackle for a lass, two pass deflections, a forced fumble, a blocked punt, and even a defensive touchdown. Taylor’s record even beat the more experienced Thompson who didn’t get a blocked punt or a defensive touchdown, proving that even in his inaugural season, he could stand with the older players.
Offensive Lineman Trey Smith is another player expected to make it big this year. Head coach Pruitt even says that Smith being cleared to play is the best news for the team, especially with his unofficial title as the best and most proven player on the unit. Smith was the best blocker while playing tackle last year, but being moved back to guard is exactly where he needs to be at his best. Standing at 6’6’’ with a strong 325-pound build, this junior is expected to be part of the solution to last year’s problems.
Linebacker Darrell Taylor is expected to put up strong stats this season. At 6’4’’ and 255-pounds, this fifth-year senior is an edge rusher who will stand out in Pruitt’s 3-4 scheme. His strengths come in how well he performs once he grows used to a role, as shown last year when he was moved to outside linebacker and started as second-best linebacker behind Jonathan Kongbo for half the season. He later went on to finish with eight sacks, leading the SEC in sacks from all returning players, as well as 11 tackles for a loss-making him third-best among those same players.
Finally, we can’t look past Quarterback Jarrett Guarantano as the potential team star. This junior has earned Pruitt’s trust as the head coach shows consistent confidence in his ability to produce great plays. Many commentators expect him to explode now that he’s used to the team, thanks to his big size and strong throwing arm. Don’t let last year’s 6-12 record as starter fool you, this 213-pounder is going to earn his chops as a team leader for this year’s Vols offense.
You can see if we’re right by checking out games at Neyland Stadium.
One of the Best Defended Stadiums in the League
Neyland Stadium is an incredible sports stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee that serves as the home for the Tennessee Volunteers football tea as well as a site for NFL exhibition matches. With an incredible capacity of 102,455 seats, anyone who loves football should have no trouble finding a space to enjoy the games at this historic field. The stadium was first constructed in 1921 when it was called Shields-Watkins Field, which is now the name of the playing surface. The stadium had been through 16 expansion projects leading up to their highest capacity of 104,079 before alterations provided a slight reduction to the current capacity. Neyland Stadium is easily the fourth largest stadium in the US, dropping down to fifth largest stadium compared to the world. The Stadium was named after Robert Neyland, who served three incredible stints as head coach at the University of Tennessee between 1926 and 1952.
As of week 6 in the 2016 season, the Vols recorded 464 wins, 118 losses, and 17 ties at their home games, including 36 perfect home record. The team’s longest winning streak was 30, between December of 1928 to October 21, 1933. Unlike other teams, the Vols had never had more than 4 consecutive losses at their home grounds. These records point to Neyland Stadium being one of the most likely ends for any winning streaks, as the team has a strong history of success at home.
