TEAM NOTES AT FIRST GLANCE

• Saturday is just the fourth overall meeting between Oklahoma and Tennessee and the first-ever to be played in Knoxville. • The Vols are 1-2 against the Sooners all-time and fell in the most recent meeting -- a 34-10 decision in Norman last year. It was the first-ever regular season meeting between the two programs. • UT’s only win over Oklahoma came in the 1939 Orange Bowl, capping a 10-0 season that saw the majority of polls select the Vols as national champions. • The Vols are 9-7 all-time against the Big 12. • UT will be seeking its first win over a ranked opponent since it defeated No. 11/9 South Carolina at Neyland Stadium on Oct. 19, 2013.

VOLS IN HOME OPENERS • Tennessee is 94-18-5 (.825) in home openers. Last season’s 38-7 season-opening win over Utah State ran the Vols’ current winning streak in home openers to 20 games, dating back to 1995. • Since 1933, when Tennessee joined the Southeastern Conference, the Vols have faced a ‘Power 5’ opponent in 37 home-opening games. • The Vols are 20-14-3 in those games, including a 7-8-1 mark against current SEC members. • In the SEC era, Tennessee’s largest win in a home opener came in 1996 when it defeated UNLV by a tally of 62-3. UT’s worst defeat was a 31-0 loss to Florida in 1994. • Saturday marks UT’s first-ever home-opener on Sept. 12 -- a date on which the Vols are 2-2 all-time.

#23 TENNESSEE vs #19/17 OKLAHOMA • A ranked Tennessee team will take the field against a ranked opponent for the first time since 2012.

• That year, the 23rd-ranked Vols played host to #18 Florida, dropping a 37-20 decision. • The last time a ranked Tennessee squad squared off with a ranked non-conference opponent was 2006 when #23 UT won its season-opener over No. 9 California, 35-18, at Neyland Stadium.

TENNESSEE 59, BOWLING GREEN 30 • Tennessee improved to 89-24-6 (.773) in seasonopeners with a 59-30 win over Bowling Green last Saturday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. • Alvin Kamara (144 yards, 2 TD) and Jalen Hurd (123 yards, 3 TD) combined for 267 of UT’s 399 total rushing yards and five of the Vols’ eight touchdowns. • Quarterback Joshua Dobbs threw two touchdowns to tight end Ethan Wolf and rushed for another to give UT its seventh straight season-opening win. • Defensive back Cameron Sutton had three punt returns for a career-high 102 yards in the first half. All three returns set up Tennessee touchdowns. • With the win, the 25th-ranked Vols picked up their first win as a ranked team since the 2008 Outback Bowl when then-No. 16 UT defeated Wisconsin, 21-17. • A full recap of Tennessee’s season-opening win over Bowling Green can be found on page 42.

15 TRUE FRESHMEN, 22 NEWCOMERS • Tennessee played 15 true freshmen in the opener vs. Bowling Green, tied for the second-highest figure in the country during week one.

• Freshman wide receiver Jauan Jennings was the only true freshman to start for the Vols in Nashville. A product of Murfreesboro, Jennings made his first career catch on the team’s second offensive play. • He is the first true freshman to start the opener at WR since teammate Marquez North made his debut in 2012.

• Tennessee’s specialists played a big roll in the Vols’ season-opening win over Bowling Green most notably in the return game. • Cameron Sutton had three punt returns for a career-high 102 yards, recording returns of 47, 34, and 21 yards. All three of Sutton’s returns set up Tennessee touchdowns. • Following that performance, Sutton ranks as the No. 4 punt returner in the country in terms of average

“QUOTABLE”

22 / 27 / 34 / 56 • After playing as the youngest team in the country in 2014, youth remains a major theme for Tennessee. • The Vols returned 50 letterwinners and 21 starters from the 2014 squad that went 7-6 with a TaxSlayer Bowl win over Iowa. Still, the travel roster to last week’s home opener in Nashville featured: • 22 true freshmen • 27 overall freshmen (redshirt + true) • 34 players who had never taken a snap for UT • 56 who have played one year or fewer with UT • 15 of those 22 true freshmen saw the field against Bowling Green while 22 newcomers made their Tennessee debuts. • Last season Tennessee played 23 freshmen over the course of the year, the most for any FBS program in the nation. • It was also the only team in the nation that did not return a starter on offensive AND defensive lines.

100 FOR KAMARA/100 FOR HURD • Tennessee produced a pair of 100-yard rushers for the 16th time in school history, as Alvin Kamara carried the ball 15 times for 144 yards and Jalen Hurd rolled up 123 yards on 23 tries against Bowling Green. • Kamara’s rushing total was the most-ever by a Vol in his first game wearing the Orange & White. • The last time Tennessee had two 100-yard rushers was in 2014 at South Carolina when QB Joshua Dobbs had 166 yards and Hurd had a career-best 125. • The last time UT had a pair of 100-yard running backs was 2009 when Montario Hardesty rushed for 160 and Bryce Brown added 104 vs. Western Kentucky. • Kamara is the first UT running back to rush for 100 yards in his first game since Brown’s 104-yard performance against WKU in 2009. • Hurd has now rushed for 100-yards on five occasions in his career and has moved past the 1,000-yard rushing tally. He now has 1,022 in 14 games.

“I was just stroking down the sideline. I wouldn’t say I almost got caught, but I looked up at the end and [the BGSU defender] was kinda close. I had to pick it up.” return at 34.0. • Sophomore Evan Berry returned only one kickoff on Saturday but made the most of it when he brought it 67 yards into BGSU territory. The return set up another Volunteer touchdown. • Redshirt sophomore Trevor Daniel made his UT debut at punter and boomed his second punt as a Vol 61 yards. He averaged 47.0 yards per kick with one downed inside the 20-yard line. • Sophomore kicker Aaron Medley finished the season-opener eight-for-eight on PATs, a careerhigh.

DOBBS AT THE HELM • Dating back to the final game of the 2013 season, Tennessee is 6-1 with Joshua Dobbs starting under center. • Five of those wins have come in SEC play with a sixth coming in UT’s 45-28 win in the 2015 TaxSlayer Bowl. • Over his last seven starts, the Tennessee offense has averaged 38.7 points per game and 454.1 yards of total offense. Those figures would have ranked 10th and 31st, respectively, in the nation last season. • Averaging 202.6 passing yards and 76.4 rushing yards per game over those seven starts, Dobbs has accounted for 278.7 total yards per game -- 61.4 percent of UT’s total offense. • Dobbs accounted for 292 total yards in UT’s seasonopening win over Bowling Green, ranking him 3rd in the SEC in total offense.

THE DOBBS EFFECT

Beech HS Retires Hurd’s #18

Sophomore running back Jalen Hurd had his number retired by his high school alma mater, Beech HS, on Aug. 28 during a halftime ceremony. Hurd won the Class AAA Mr. Football Award as a junior at Beech in 2012. That season he rushed for 3,357 yards and 43 touchdowns in leading the Buccaneers to the Class 5A Bluecross Bowl State Championship.

# Changes Honor Sidelined Teammates Three Vols have changed their previous jersey numbers to wear those of injured teammates for the 2015 season.

Jashon Robertson was the first to make the switch, moving from 73 to 75 to honor sidelined OL Marcus Jackson, who is expected to miss the season (biceps injury).

73 > 75

The second switch came from junior DB Cameron Sutton, who shed his previous 23 to wear the No. 7 belonging to Rashaan Gaulden (broken foot).

23 > 7

Finally, DB Maiik Foreman will wear No. 13 instead of his usual 22 as a token of respect to former DB Devaun Swafford, whose career was ended over the summer due to health reasons.

#Team119

Butch Jones brought the concept of referring to each year’s team by what season it is in Tennessee history to differentiate how each season starts fresh. It keeps in line with his “Snap and Clear” mentality.

#CheckerNeyland Part II One of the most impressive and unique seating displays in college football is back for the 2015 season. A 100% fan-driven initiative, #CheckerNeyland saw 102,455 fans pack into Neyland Stadium in similitude to Tennessee’s iconic checkerboard endzones. The Sept. 12 home opener against Oklahoma will stand as this season’s #CheckerNeyland game. Visit CheckerNeyland.com to see the color of your section.

#BLACKSTRIPES

#SWOOSH The Swoosh makes its return to Rocky Top.

Much-anticipated since the Tennessee department of athletics announced its eight-year apparel and sponsorship agreement with Nike in early, 2014, the Volunteers officially revealed their new look on July 1, 2015. Vol Nation’s passion was on full display on Reveal Day as fans logged on to UTSports.com at a record pace to view the live, all-sport, uniform unveiling show, “Swoosh,” produced by VFL Films. During its live airing, “Swoosh” had over 330,000 views with just under 107,000 unique users -- more than 50 percent of which were first-time visitors to the site. In a runway style showcase, Tennessee Football showed off three uniform sets: the traditional orange and white combinations as well as a new alternate look: the Smokey Gray. An homage to the Smoky Mountains that hug Knoxville and much of East Tennessee, the Smokey Gray uniforms had their distinct shade derived from actual visits to the Great Smoky Mountains by Nike designers. Another unique feature can be seen on the Smokey Gray helmet as the subtle sillhouette of Smoky Mountain ridgeline wraps the dome. Tennessee’s social media accounts produced eye-popping numbers on the day of the reveal. The @Vol_Football account had a reach of 14.2 million users on Wednesday. The tweet formally announcing the new Nike uniforms had over 116,000 impressions. The total Twitter reach of “Vols” and #Vols was more that 47 million users. The Tennessee Football Facebook page also received unprecedented traffic. Photo galleries of the orange, white and Smokey Gray uniforms combined to reach 2.5 million users. 1.5 million of those views came from the gallery of the new Smokey Gray alternate uniform. Tennessee fans showed their loyalty and excitement with their wallets as well. Online visitors purchased over $150,000 in Nike merchandise from the online team shop on 1,500 transactions, an average of $100 per sale.

Traditionally, a newcomer to a football team is working to earn his stripes. At Tennessee, The opposite is true as the Vol rookies are fighting every day to lose them.

The passion of Tennessee fans is unmatched, and the excitement of the new partnership with Nike is just beginning!

Every new member of Team 119 had a black stripe placed on their otherwise-white practice helmets at the beginning of fall camp. The players’ staff is charged with determining when the newcomers can have the stripe removed.

#VolsOnSnap

Notable Volunteers to be among the first of their class to lose their black stripes include DB Cameron Sutton (2013), DL Derek Barnett (2014), and RB Jalen Hurd (2014). RB and JUCO transfer Alvin Kamara was the first Vol newcomer to lose his black stripe in 2015.

#MYALL

Butch Jones has found new inspiration for the 2015 season from the iconic “I will give my all for Tennessee today” sign in the locker room. “The theme this year for our football program is ‘My All’. I think it is very fitting with the ‘I will give my all for Tennessee today’ sign. There is a difference between what we call a concept and a belief. A concept is just a concept. You see it, but you don’t believe in it. You don’t touch that sign every time you run out onto the field of competition as a good luck charm. You touch that sign because you believe you are going to give your all for Tennessee.” — @UTCoachJones

Before the season, Coach Jones asked every player to share their personal ‘My All’ -- an ideal of determination they will consistently offer #Team119. “We touch the sign every day, but having that slogan for camp, especially for the younger guys really [asks] us are really giving our all for Tennessee every day? Are we really grinding, are we not taking any days off? It’s a great slogan and definitely fits this team well.” — @josh_dobbs1

Letting #SleepingVols Lie The effort to maximize performance on the field took a step in a new direction during fall camp when Tennessee players were assigned sleep trackers and sleep coaches. Sensors were placed on players’ mattresses to track breathing and heart rate -- key factors in determining the restfulness of a night’s sleep and the recovery benefits gained. The sensors also help set bedtimes so players can maximize their time spent asleep.

HEAD COACH BUTCH JONES CAREER NOTES COACHING CAREER Year 1987-89 1990-92 1993-94 1995 1996-97 1998 1999 2000 2001-03 2004 2005-06 2007-09 2010-12 2013-

THIRD SEASON AT TENNESSEE | @UTCOACHJONES The University of Tennessee announced on Dec. 7, 2012 the hiring of Butch Jones as the 24th head football coach of the Vols. Jones owns a 62-40 record (.608) in eight seasons as a head coach, and his teams have earned bowl appearances in five of his first seven seasons as a head coach. Jones is 37-23 (.617) in conference play and 51-3 when leading at halftime and 51-4 when leading after three quarters. Jones joined UT from the University of Cincinnati, where he finished with a 23-14 record (.657) in three seasons with the Bearcats. Tennessee finished its second season under Jones with a 7-6 record that included a 45-28 win over Iowa in the TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville which marked the first January bowl game for UT since the 2007 season. The Vols opened the 2014 season by playing 21 true freshmen in a 38-7 win over Utah State, the most true freshmen to play in a season opener in UT history. Overall, Tennessee led the nation overall last season with 23 true freshman playing in 2014, with 12 true freshmen starting games for the Vols during the season. Jones and his staff have been relentless on the recruiting trail since arriving in Knoxville. In February 2014, Tennessee signed a consensus top 10 recruiting class that was ranked as high as top five by most media outlets. Jones has prioritized the state of Tennessee in his recruiting efforts, and the 2014 class featured the overwhelming majority of the top talent in the state of Tennessee signing with the Vols, including Freshman All-American and All-SEC performer Derek Barnett, a multitude of Freshman All-SEC players (Barnett, Todd Kelly, Jr., Jashon Robertson), and team’s leading rusher in 2014, Jalen Hurd. The 2015 recruiting class was once again ranked in the Top 5, by most services giving the Vols back-to-back Top 5 recruiting classes for the first time in school history. Ten of those recruits arrived early in Knoxville in January 2015. A staple of Jones’ programs has been success in the classroom, and the UT program has also made great strides academically during his tenure. The program has posted the highest team GPAs in program history during Jones’ tenure, including a record 2.85 in Spring in 2015 and previous record mark of 2.77 GPA in the Fall of 2014. The program has also increased its cumulative GPA in each of the last six semesters. Additionally, the Tennessee program also posted the best APR scores in program history in each of his first two semesters as head coach, including a perfect 1000 score in Spring 2013 and no eligibility points lost in either semester. Graduation is a top priority for Jones, as 14 of 18 seniors on the 2014 team received their degrees prior to the TaxSlayer Bowl, with the other four on track to do so by either May or August 2015. A total of 21 of 24 seniors from the 2013 team have graduated, with two in the NFL and on track to do so through the RAC (Renewing Academic Commitment) program and the other having graduated from the Knoxville Police Academy. In his first season on Rocky Top, the Vols defeated No. 11/9 South Carolina, the first win for UT over a ranked opponent since 2009. The win over the Gamecocks in 2014, when the Vols trailed by 14 with less than two minutes remaining, marked the biggest comeback in school history that late in a game. Also in 2014, the 95 combined points against South Carolina (45) and Kentucky (50) are the most for Tennessee in consecutive games since 2003, while the 50 points and the 34-point margin of victory over Kentucky (50-16) are the most for UT since 2010. Jones was also the head coach for three years at Central Michigan (27-13, .675, from 2007-09). He has won at least eight games in five of his six years as a head coach, including

three seasons of nine-plus wins in the last four years (2009, 2011, 2012). Jones also has won 10 or more games twice, finishing 11-2 at CMU in 2009 and posting a 10-3 record and top 25 final national ranking with Cincinnati in 2011. Jones has also finished the season ranked in the top 25 in three of the last four seasons (2009 with CMU and 2011-12 at Cincinnati). Jones has won four conference championships in his seven seasons as a head coach, including the Big East title in 2011 and 2012 with Cincinnati and the 2007 and 2009 Mid-American Conference titles at Central Michigan. He earned Big East Conference Coach of the Year honors after his 10-win season with the Bearcats in 2011 and earned the same honor from CBSSports.com in 2012, a year in which his squad captured its second consecutive bowl victory while also finishing with a top 25 ranking. UC finished the regular season 9-3 with a 5-2 league record to share the Big East crown. In 2011, Cincinnati was the only program nationally to win both its conference title and its league top academic honor, earning the 2010-11 Big East Team Academic Excellence Award. Also that same year, JK Schaffer of the Bearcats named the 2011 American Eagle Outfitters Big East Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the second consecutive UC player to earn that honor (John Goebel in 2010). The 2011 UC team that finished 10-3 improved six wins from the 4-8 finish in 2010, making the Bearcats the most improved team from a BCS conference in the nation that season. Cincinnati also recorded its first bowl win over a BCS opponent, defeating Vanderbilt 31-24 in the Liberty Bowl. Cincinnati placed eight players on the All-Big East Conference team from 2011-12, including Big East Offensive Player of the Year Isaiah Pead and Big East Co-Defensive Player of the Year Derek Wolfe in 2011. Pead closed out his UC career with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, the first time a Bearcat back has accomplished that in almost 25 years. Before accepting the head coaching position at Cincinnati, Jones’s 27-13 record at Central Michigan included a pair of MAC titles, three consecutive bowl appearances, and a No. 23 postseason ranking in 2009. The Chippewas were 22-3 in the MAC during his tenure, and he was the only head coach to lead the program to consecutive bowl games as well as the first in the history of the MAC to do so in his first three seasons. In addition to coaching Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl receiver Antonio Brown at Central Michigan, one of Jones’ players while coaching the Chippewas, offensive lineman Eric Fisher, was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Jones recruited Fisher to join the CMU 2009 where he went on to a decorated career. Joining Fisher in Kansas City was another Jones product, Travis Kelce who was selected in the third round after playing at Cincinnati. Jones was the wide receivers coach at West Virginia from 2005-06 before he moved to Central Michigan, during which time the Mountaineers went a combined 22-3 and the 2005 squad defeated Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. He served as an assistant at Central Michigan for seven years from 1998-2004, as offensive coordinator (2002-04), running backs coach (1999-2004), and as tight ends coach (1998). Jones was also the offensive coordinator at Ferris State from 1995-97 and at Wilkes University from 1993-94 and also served as an assistant at Rutgers from 1990-92. Jones is a 1990 graduate of Ferris State University in Michigan, where he was a two-year letterman in football. His original entry into the coaching ranks was as an intern with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1987-89. Jones and his wife, Barb, are the parents of three sons: Alex (18), Adam (14), and Andrew (8). Alex joined the team as a kicker in 2015.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING... “Coach Butch Jones is a man that not only has the football acumen to bring Tennessee back to it’s rightful place in the SEC, and College Football world, he’s a man that will connect with the “Volunteer Nation,” and “Big Orange Country.” - Charles Davis, Former Tennessee defensive back and current FOX NFL analyst “Without a doubt, Tennessee hired a quality football coach in Butch Jones, but more importantly, it hired an even even better man to run its program. He brings a passion and relentless desire for success that will most certainly lead to great things both on and off the field.” - Brian Kelly, Notre Dame head coach, former Cincinnati and Central Michigan head coach “I have been told by people for years that Butch Jones is a rising coach and a star in this business. I did my due diligence and got to know Butch to a degree. I feel that Butch is a star and someone who can coach at any level including the SEC. With the resources at Tennessee he will soar as a coach and will have athletic directors at other schools saying `why didn’t we hire Butch Jones.’ Butch is also a man of integrity and runs the program with integrity. He is an excellent recruiter and it is not a cliché to say that he will turn his players into men and men with integrity.” - Chris Mortensen, ESPN Senior NFL Analyst

NEYLAND STADIUM | SHIELDS-WATKINS FIELD

CAPACITY: 102,455

449-121-17 OVERALL RECORD IN 94 YEARS AT NEYLAND STADIUM

THE BEST GETS BETTER The Home of the Vols got a makeover in 2010, transforming one of college football’s meccas into an aesthetic masterpiece. The concrete walls that used to hold up the west side were replaced with brick. Below the press box, six new panels display some of the finest to ever don the Orange and White-- Al Wilson, Gen. Robert R. Neyland, Reggie White, Peyton Manning, Johnny Majors and Doug Atkins. Most noticeable from the outside are the approximately 700,000 bricks that totally transformed the look of the stadium’s north and west sides. Standing in the middle of that transformation is the Gate 21 plaza area. Adjacent to the Gate 21 plaza is another change, the new amphitheater at the corner of Phillip Fulmer Way and Andy Holt Avenue. The Vol Network’s Kickoff Call-In Show takes place there, sporting spiffy new digs after spending years on a make-shift platform in front of a worn down hillside. Just inside Gate 21, the Tennessee Official Team Shop is open for business six days a week under management of the UT Bookstore.

19 STRAIGHT YEARS WITH 100,000+ Tennessee has had at least one home crowd of 100,000-plus in each of the last 19 seasons, including sellouts against Alabama, Florida and Utah State in 2014. Only Michigan has a longer streak dating back to 1975.

TOP 10 ATTENDANCE With four sellouts of 102,455 in 2014 (Utah State, Florida, Alabama and Kentucky), Tennessee ranked seventh in the nation in average attedance (99,754). UT finished sixth in total attendance (698,276). ¢ 2014 Average Home Attendance Leaders

ATTENDANCE SURGES With an average attendance of 99,754 last season, Tennessee posted its highest average attendance at home since 2010 (99,781). Since 2012 (89,965), the average attendance at Neyland Stadium has increased by nearly 10,000.

THE GENERAL THE PROVERBIAL YARDSTICK

NEYLAND’S MAXIMS OF FOOTBALL

One of the greatest coaches in the history of the game of football, Gen. Robert Reese Neyland is still, and will most likely always be, the yardstick by which all Tennessee football coaches are measured. For 21 years, he led the Big Orange to win after win and championship after championship. His 173 wins, seven conference titles and four national championships set the bar at one of the nation’s finest football institutions. According to UT legend Gus Manning, no one summed up Neyland and his coaching ability better than Wallace Wade: “He could take his and beat yours or take yours and beat his.” -- Wallace Wade, Alabama and Duke head coach and Neyland rival.

1. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win. 2. Play for and make the breaks and when one comes your way -- SCORE. 3. If at first the game or the breaks go against you, don’t let up -- put on more steam. 4. Protect our kickers, our QB, our lead and our ball game. 5. Ball, oskie, cover, block, cut and slice, pursue and gang tackle -- for this is the WINNING EDGE. 6. Press the kicking game. Here is where the breaks are made. 7. Carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for 60 minutes.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING... “The big games I played in Neyland Stadium are right up there with the Super Bowl. It is still one of the most electric atmospheres I have ever experienced, and the passion of the fans is what makes the difference.” Peyton Manning, Former Vol and Denver Broncos QB “It is a remarkable experience. It starts with the Vol Walk down to the stadium, and the energy just builds and builds until you run through the ‘T’ for kickoff.” - Jerod Mayo, Former Vol and Patriots LB “Don’t know if it is the stadium on the water, a bright orange I can even see or the 100,000+ die-hard fans but Tennessee is definitely one of my top-5 spots in college football. Neyland and Tennessee, you far exceeded my expectations.” - Brock Huard, ESPN/SEC Network game analyst

“I’ve been to LSU, Florida State and Texas and almost every place that could be considered one of the toughest places to play. But we went down to Knoxville for a night game, and that Tennessee crowd was the most impressive that I have ever faced. Neyland Stadium was just electric.” - Bob Davie, ESPN game analyst and former Notre Dame head coach “It’s static noise. You can’t hear anything. You go up and down the line -- your wide receivers, your running backs, your tight ends -- nobody can hear. Nobody.” - Nate Longshore, Former Cal quarterback (2006) “It’s got to be Tennessee! That night in that stadium with the orange and Rocky Top -- that’s my favorite!” - Lee Corso, ESPN College Football Analyst

ANDERSON TRAINING CENTER Tennessee’s brand new, state-of-the-art Anderson Training Center is one of the most modern and functional buildings of its kind. The 145,000-square foot building includes an amphitheater-style team room, coaches’ offices, position meeting rooms, a dining hall, players’ lounge, a 7,000-square foot locker room, a 22,000-square foot, multi-level weight room as well as a new training room, hydrotherapy and nutrition area. The building also features several technological upgrades, including a state-of-the-art video delivery system for players and coaches. The locker room includes roomy, custom-built and ventilated lockers with electrical outlets for charging portable devices like cellphones, iPods and laptops. Also included in the building is an updated football hall of fame area. The Anderson Training Center joins the Brenda Lawson Athletic Center and Neyland-Thompson Sports Center. It provides student-athletes direct access to both the 120-yard Robert E. White indoor football field and Haslam Field, Tennessee’s two outdoor football practice fields. The facility is named in honor of the leadership support of the Anderson family, including Charlie and Moll Anderson of Knoxville, Terry and Susan Anderson and Charlie Sr. and Hilda Anderson, both of Florence, Ala. Charlie is a former student-athlete with the Volunteer football program (1974-76) and served as a Board of Trustree member. He and Moll have been leadership donors to athletics for many years and have also impacted multiple areas of campus with their generosity. Terry also played football at UT and his son, Carson, also played for the Vols and graduated in Dec. 2012. The $45 million facility was dedicated on April 19, 2013.

1968 ORANGE BOWL MEETING

MIAMI — A night football game, this time at Miami’s Orange Bowl, became the Vols’ undoing for the second time in the 1967 season. The Vols closed the 1967 season the way they opened it, with a loss under the lights. While UCLA was the culprit in the opener, Oklahoma edged the Vols in the season finale. The Vols fell behind 19-0 in the first half and saw their first series of the second half stopped at the OU 14. But, on the ensuing series, Jimmy Glover returned a pass interception 36 yards for a touchdown and the Vols were back in the game. With 5:07 left in the third quarter, Charley Fulton scored and it was 19-14. The Vols closed the gap to 19-17, before giving up an interception that the Sooners returned for a touchdown. Warren brought the Vols back once again, capping a 77-yard drive with a 1-yard sneak and it was 26-24. The Vols took possession at the Oklahoma 43 when Steve Owens was stopped short on fourth-and-1 and worked the ball to the 27 yard line with time running out. But Karl Kremser’s field goal faded wide right and Oklahoma had the game in the second meeting between the two teams. TEAM STATISTICS First Downs Rushes-Yards Passing Yards Passes (Att.-Comp.-Int.)

1939 ORANGE BOWL MEETING

MIAMI — Tennessee and Oklahoma squared off in the 1939 Orange Bowl in a classic battle of speed against size. And, when it was over, Tennessee’s speed and stamina had won out by a 17-0 count. Tennessee had come into the game undefeated and No. 2 in the country and Oklahoma was riding a 14-game winning streak. Tennessee scored first when a 15-yard penalty backed the Sooners to their 3-yard line. Vol tailback George Cafego returned the ensuing punt to the Sooner 27 and followed up the punt return with a key gain to the 12. Two plays later, Bob Foxx scored from the 8. The Vols scored a field goal after a Sooner fumble, a 22-yarder by Bowden Wyatt, and led 10-0 at the half. Tennessee scored its final touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 19-yard run by Babe Wood on a reverse. The Vols polished off their eighth shutout of the season by stopping the Sooners the rest of the way and finished undefeated in 11 games.

Vols Fall At #4/3 Sooners, 34-10 NORMAN, Okla. -- In the first regular-season meeting between the Vols and Sooners, #4/3 Oklahoma handed Tennessee a 34-10 defeat on Saturday night. Tennessee fell to 2-1 while the Sooners stayed perfect at 3-0. Vols senior quarterback Justin Worley finished the game 21-of-44 for 201 yards with a touchdown. With a pair of true freshmen starting on the offensive line, he was sacked five times. Josh Smith had a career-high five catches for 58 yards and a score. Marquez North added six catches for 67 yards. Freshman Jalen Hurd rushed for 97 yards including a 43-yard burst late in the game. On defense, A.J. Johnson led the way with 11 stops, for his 19th career game with double-figure stops. Jalen Reeves-Maybin followed behind with nine tackles. Cameron Sutton and LaDarrell McNeil also contributed with seven and six tackles, respectively. Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight was 20-of-33 for 308 yards and one touchdown pass and a rushing score. Keith Ford scored two touchdowns, one of the ground and one through the air. Sterling Shepard led the Sooners’ receivers with five catches for 109 yards. Leading 20-7 at halftime, Oklahoma opened the second half with a quick drive (2:35) to build a 27-7 edge as Knight ran the ball in from five yards out. Aaron Medley converted a 31-yard field goal to bring the Vols within, 27-10 with 2:29 left in the third quarter. The Vols took advantage of a muffed punt recovered by ReevesMaybin. Oklahoma sealed the game as Julian Wilson intercepted a tipped ball and ran the ball back 100 yards with 10:57 left in the game for a 34-10 lead for the Sooners. The Vols got on the board as Worley connected with Smith on a 40-yard touchdown pass with 9:46 left in first half, making it 13-7, Oklahoma. Worley converted a pair of long third downs (11 and 12 yards) with a 30-yard pass to Hurd and a 14-yarder to North to keep the eight-play, 79-yard drive alive. The Sooners responded two drives later to take a 20-7 lead on Ford’s second score of the game on an 11-yard rush. Three plays prior to the touchdown, the Vols seemingly regained possession on a fumble. But instant replay upheld a run by Samaje Perine noting he was down before fumbling. Oklahoma jumped out to a 13-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Knight connected with Ford on a 23-yard scoring play to push the lead to 10-0 with 5:52 left in the first quarter. That TD was wrapped by a pair of field goals from Michael Hunnicutt from 29 and 27 yards. Having already played the most true freshmen in the nation (22) coming into the game, the Vols started five true freshmen in the game including a pair of the right side of the offensive line in right guard Jashon Robertson and right tackle Coleman Thomas, making the first start of his carer. Tight end Daniel Helm also drew his first starting nod in place of classmate Ethan Wolf, who was injured in the Vols last game. This was the first regular-season meeting between Tennessee and Oklahoma with the teams splitting a pair of Orange Bowls with the Vols winning in 1939 and the Sooners in 1968. >> SCORING SUMMARY Team Qtr Time Scoring Play Conversion Plays TOP Score OU 1st 9:48 Hunnicutt 29 yd field goal 10-45 3:53 0-3 OU 1st 5:52 Ford 23 yd pass from Knight Hunnicutt kick 6-54 1:48 0-10 OU 1st 0:04 Hunnicutt 27 yd field goal 7-53 3:15 0-13 UT 2nd 9:46 Smith 40 yd pass from Worley Medley kick 8-79 2:54 7-13 OU 2nd 1:33 Ford 11 yd run Hunnicutt kick 9-81 3:49 7-20 OU 3rd 12:25 Knight 5 yd run Hunnicutt kick 6-75 2:35 7-27 UT 3rd 2:29 Medley 31 yd field goal 7-17 2:55 10-27 OU 4th 10:57 Wilson 100 yd interception return Hunnicutt kick 10-34

NOTES FOR THE RECORD Serving as captains for Tennessee were Joshua Dobbs, Brian Randolph, Curt Maggitt and Jaylen Reeves-Maybin. GAME NOTES #25/25 Tennessee won its first game as a ranked team since defeating Wisconsin in the 2008 Outback Bowl (2007 season). Tennessee produced a pair of 100-yard rushers for the 16th time in school history, as Alvin Kamara carried the ball 15 times for 144 yards, while Jalen Hurd rolled up 123 yards on 23 tries. The Vols finished with 399 rushing yards and nearly hit the 400 mark for the first time since Nov. 26, 1994, when they had 406 vs. Vanderbilt. It is the most since that game. Jalen Hurd had his second consecutive and second overall multiple touchdown game, hitting paydirt three times vs. Bowling Green in the first half. He had two rushing TDs vs. Iowa in the TaxSlayer Bowl last season. Hurd hit the 100-yard rushing mark for the fifth time in his career and moved past the 1,000yard rushing tally. He now has 1,022 in 14 games. Ethan Wolf caught a pair of touchdown passes from Joshua Dobbs (11 and 18 yards), marking the first two scoring receptions of Wolf’s career. A pair of Vols playing their first games led the team statistically, as freshman Jauan Jennings had three catches for 56 receiving yards and redshirt sophomore Alvin Kamara produced 144 yards and two touchdowns on 15 rushes.

#25 Vols Power Past Bowling Green, 59-30 NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- No. 25 Tennessee ran for six touchdowns and picked up 399 of its 604 yards on the ground en route to a 59-30 victory over Bowling Green in Saturday’s season opener at Nissan Stadium. In a return home to the Midstate, sophomore running back Jalen Hurd ran for three touchdowns as Tennessee opened the 2015 season with its most points in a season opener since scoring 63 against Western Kentucky in 2009. Hurd, from the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville, ran for 123 yards. Backfield mate Alvin Kamara also went over the century mark with 144 yards (most-ever by a Vol in his debut) and two scores of his own in his Tennessee debut. The Vols won their seventh consecutive season opener and have now won 19 of their last 21 openers. Tennessee has now won 21 consecutive openers played in the state of Tennessee, including two in Nashville (2002 and 2015), dating to 1986. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs threw for 205 yards on 15-of-22 with two touchdowns to Ethan Wolf (11 yards and 18 yards). Nashville native Josh Malone had three catches for 40 yards. Freshman Jauan Jennings led all UT receivers with 56 yards on three grabs. The game was delayed 80 minutes in the middle of the third quarter after lightning was detected in the area. Bowling Green quarterback Matt Johnson piled up 424 yards through the air, going 27-for49 with two touchdowns. Gehrig Dieter had a career day with seven catches for 133 yards with a score. The Falcons had 557 yards of total offense. Tennessee finished with 604 yards, its most since racking up 645 against South Carolina on Nov. 1, 2014. After giving up and early field goal to the Falcons, Tennessee responded fast with three touchdowns, all on the ground as Hurd ran in from 8 and 1 yards while Kamara went around the left end for a 10-yard scamper. That put the Vols up 21-3 with five minutes left in the first quarter. The three scoring drives came in a total time of 5:19 (for an average drive of 1:46). Bowling Green responded with the game’s next three scores to draw within one point at 21-20 with 5:31 left in the first half. Johnson connected on a pair of scoring passes to Hunter Folkertsma (11 yards) and Gehrig Dieter (31 yards). Hurd’s third score of the game and Wolf’s scoring catch pushed the Vols’ lead back to 15 at halftime, 35-20. The Falcons refused to quit as Ryan Burbrink’s seven-yard rushing TD capped a five-play, 75-yard drive that pulled Bowling Green to within one score at 35-27 with 11:33 left in the third. Dobbs found Wolf over the middle for an 18-yard score in the ensuing UT possession and the Vols answered a BGSU field goal with an electrifying 56-yard touchdown run by Kamara. Tennessee pulled away with 10 more points scored in the fourth quarter off an 18-yard TD run by Dobbs and a 26-yard field goal by Aaron Medley.
