Best Plays of 2008: Brent Vinson's Pick Six Poop Out

At stake: See By Guess Who . . . Eric Berry.

In-game context: After a scoreless first quarter, Montario Hardesty finally had the Vols on the board with an eight-yard TD with 11:25 to go in the second. Daniel Lincoln added three points on the next series, and on Vandy's ensuing possession, Eric Berry scored a TD on an interception bringing the score to 17-0.

Impact: Seriously, what's up with slowing down and running out of bounds at that time? Well, whatever. Daniel Lincoln added three points, and the Vols went into the locker room up 20-0.
