Second half strikes again; Vols lose to Gators at Neyland

Second half strikes again; Vols lose to Gators at Neyland

Right up until the second half Saturday night, the incredible momentum that energized Knoxville for the past week seemed like it might be enough to carry the Tennessee Volunteers to a victory against the Florida Gators for the first time in eight meetings.

The Vols were up 14-10 in front of a sell-out crowd of more than 102,000.

 

But then the 2nd half happened to a team that's had some memorable 2nd half meltdowns in the past few years.

Then the Gators scored 27 points.

More than 102,000 people headed to Neyland Stadium on Saturday to watch the Vols take on Florida.

That makes for a lot of trash.

Cleanup crews have been out since late Saturday night picking up what they say is the largest mess they have seen in years.

The trash piled up Saturday night, but as thousands left Neyland stadium headed for home, dozens of crews began picking up your mess.

The real deep cleaning began bright and early Sunday morning. 

Excitement over ESPN Gameday comes to a disappointing end

Vols fans were excited heading into Neyland Stadium to watch Tennessee take on the Florida Gators.

Its ending, resulting in a loss for Tennessee, was disappointing.  The Gators took home the win 37-20.

But
before the loss, WBIR's Jennifer Meckles captured Vol fans' excitement before the
highly-anticipated ESPN Gameday.  The official count for the Sunday's
game in Neyland Stadium was more than 102,000 people.

Many Vol fans helped out those in need before heading into Neyland Stadium on Saturday.

Second Harvest Food Bank sold "Tim Kerin Power Towels" outside the stadium's gates two hours before kickoff.  The towels, which cost around five dollars, are named after a popular UT football trainer, who died back in 1992.

Fans also could donate one dollar, which is enough to provide three meals.  

This was the memorial drive's 21st anniversary.  It raised $35 thousand dollars last year.

The big buzz before the big UT-Florida game Saturday was focused on Circle Park where ESPN's GameDay crew set up shop.

"It's really awesome to have GameDay, we're back in the spotlight a little bit, so it's very exciting," said Joshua Stovall, a UT junior. "The last time we were in the national spotlight was Kiffin leaving, so that's nice for us to be in the national spotlight for something good."

Stovall brought along an enormous Tennessee flag, while many other fans brought along signs - a popular accessory for the fans of the cable sports shows.
