UT 6, Georgia Tech 0 (1956)
"Must have been the most fundamental classic football game of the conservative school."
UT 78, Mississippi State 76 (1967)
"Three overtimes in Starkville. Tennessee hadnt won a conference championship in 22 years."
UT 35, Miami 7 (1986)
"Just a complete switch in the roles of the two teams. A lot of people thought Miami was No. 1 and Tennessee just totally dominated."
Lady Vols 67, La. Tech 44 (1987)
"The Corn-Fed Chicks. Pat Summitts first national championship. A lot of people thought it got the monkey off her back."
