This Day In #Vols History (Dec. 4)

On Dec. 4, 1965, the No. 7 Vols beat No. 5 UCLA, 37-34, in what was dubbed the "Rosebonnet Bowl" by Vol Network broadcaster George Mooney, because of the postseason destinations of the two teams based on the game's result. The Vols' Dewey 'Swamp Rat' Warren scored the game-winning touchdown on 4th-and-1 in the final minute on a 1-yard bootleg. Warren threw for 274 yards in the game played in Memphis.

On Dec. 4, 2012, legendary Vols coach Phillip Fulmer was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
