Saturday will be the 18th time the Vols have appeared in the on-site marquee matchup for ESPN's College Gameday, and the eighth time the show has been in Knoxville. Chris, Lee, and Kirk haven't been to Neyland Stadium since the 2004 Auburn game, and the Vols haven't appeared in a Gameday matchup since the 2006 Arkansas game in Fayetteville. Here's a brief look at how the Vols have fared in the nation's biggest spotlight:
