Watch the University of Tennessee football games online so you get a chance to see one of the most popular college sports programs of all time. In fact, there isn’t even enough room here to list all of the All-American players the school has produced. It has a long history as a winning program as well.
There are other unique touches that, well, touch-up the tradition that is uniquely that of the Tennessee Volunteers, the school’s nickname. These include the team running right through the big letter T every game day. Also, the Volunteer band will play the song “Rocky Top” at least 3,116 times during any game event. (Just kidding) Take a look at the Volunteer end zone and you will see the UT orange and white checkered design that is instantaneously famous but unique.
The Vols, the diminutive term applied to the team or even the school, always make whatever top 10 list when it comes to describing an NCAA College football program. When examining the SEC, only Alabama can boast of a football tradition and history that might possibly outdo Tennessee but only by a slight bit.
The Volunteers began their football history path a very long time ago – 1891 to be exact – when it fielded its first competitive football team. Back then they didn’t belong to any conference. However, UT became part of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1896. Then, the Vols played in the Southern Conference from 1921 until 1932, joining the Southeastern Conference in 1933.
One of the most important stories about the history of the Tennessee volunteers has to do with its home playing venue – Neyland Stadium. The stadium is known as the fifth largest Tennessee city every home game day when more than 100,000 of the Volunteer faithful gather to watch the team in action.
