The situation became dire as Kentucky drove inside Tennessee’s one-yard line in hopes of punching in the go-ahead score.
But Tennessee held tough and stopped the Wildcats on a 4th-and-goal, which subsequently led to another “W” on the season.
That goal line stop has Vols fans buzzing as we head into the final three weeks of the season. Confidence in the direction of the program currently sits at 95.5%, which is an all-time high for the 2019 season.
Let’s get to 100%, folks!
With potential wins over Missouri and Vanderbilt looming, it’s hard to imagine not reaching that number.
As for this week’s Top 25, I’m sure most of you can guess who sits atop the rankings.
Yep, if you guessed LSU, you win — nothing. Because it was that obvious.
The Tigers jumped Ohio State after their win over Alabama, who dropped to fourth in this week’s poll.
Georgia slid into the top-5, while Baylor jumped all the way to sixth. Minnesota jumped to seventh and Penn State fell all the way to 10th after its loss to Minnesota.
Virginia Tech jumped back into the top-25 (22nd) and Indiana (23rd) made its first appearance of the season after a win over Northwestern.

SB Nation also has its own Heisman Poll, where fans vote on their favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.
So far, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is leading the poll, and it doesn’t look like he will relinquish the lead anytime soon.
Unless something drastic happens, it looks like we have our 2019 Hesiman Trophy winner.
And last, but certainly not least, it’s time for the college basketball side of things when it comes to SB Nation’s FanPulse.
When it comes to Rick Barnes and the men’s basketball team, confidence is as high as it can go, with 100% of fans buying in after the season-opening win over UNC Asheville.
Damn, it’s great to be a Tennessee Vol.
