The Tennessee Volunteers are moving up in the polls once again following a convincing win over the Missouri Tigers. The Vols took advantage of losses from Auburn, Texas, Mississippi State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M this week, rising all the way up to No. 12 in the Coaches Poll.

Tennessee is now the fourth ranked team in the SEC, also jumping over LSU this week. Clemson remained at the top, while Alabama, Georgia and Florida followed.

The Volunteers will immediately get a chance to prove worthy of that ranking, with a showdown looming against Georgia on Saturday.
