Tennessee (3-5) finally defeated a Will Muschamp-coached team. It wasn’t a last-second or lucky victory, either. It was a dominating, 41-21 win over a fellow SEC East team that keeps bowl dreams alive for another week.

The Vols take on the UAB Blazers this week in hopes of notching back-to-back wins for the first time this season.


Alabama re-claimed the top spot in this week’s Top 25. Penn State (5th) moved into the top-5 after Oklahoma’s (8th) upset loss to the Kansas State Wildcats. Notre Dame (15th) and Auburn (11th) dropped out of the top-10 after losses to Michigan (18th) and LSU (2nd). Utah (9th) and Baylor (10th) replaced the Fighting Irish and the Tigers in the top-10.

Michigan (18th), Memphis (23rd), and Louisiana Tech (24th) weren’t in the top-25 last week.
