It wasn’t probable or pretty but Tennessee (6-5) is headed to a bowl for the first time in three seasons.
Early on in the season, if you would’ve told me Tennessee would be bowl eligible on November 23rd, I would’ve had my doubts but hoped for the best.
After starting their season with a 1-4 mark, following losses to Georgia State, BYU, Florida and Georgia with their lone win being against a sub-par Chattanooga team, the future was looking bleak for the Volunteers.
Since then, Tennessee has gone 5-1 in their last six games, with their only loss coming at the hands of top-ranked Alabama and their wins coming over Mississippi State, South Carolina, the week after the Gamecocks shocked the nation by defeating #3 Georgia, UAB, Kentucky, and Missouri.
The Volunteers are on a four-game winning streak and they have a chance to finish the regular-season at (7-5) with a win vs. Vanderbilt next week.
Rocky Top you’ll always be home sweet home to me.
