This Day In #Vols History (Nov. 14)

| No TrackBacks

On November 14, 1998, the No. 1 Tennessee Volunteers defeated No. 10 Arkansas, 28-24, in a battle of unbeatens at Neyland Stadium. 

Leading 24-22 with 1:47 to go, Arkansas needed only one first down to run out the clock. Razorbacks' QB Clint Stoerner tripped over the foot of his offensive lineman and attempted to use the football to steady himself, but as he stumbled, the ball came free and UT's Billy Ratliff recovered. Travis Henry took it from there, gaining 43 yards on the ground in five plays and leaped into the end zone for the game-winning TD. The Vols are 12-5 all-time on Nov. 14.

Barnett Owns UT Freshman Sacks, TFL Records

| No TrackBacks

Freshman defensive lineman Derek Barnett continues to etch his name into the Tennessee football record book. 

Following research, it has been confirmed Barnett is the owner of the Tennessee freshman record for sacks in a season with 7.0 and tackles for a loss by a freshman with 14.0 heading into the game vs. Kentucky. 

The former freshman record for sacks in a single-season was 4.0 by Ricky Holt in 1981, who was a true freshman that season. 

The previous record for TFLs by a freshman (including both true and redshirt freshmen) was 7.0 by both Dale Jones in 1983 and Billy Ratliff in 1996. Both Jones and Ratliff were redshirt freshmen. 

The previous high by a true freshman was 5.5 by Curt Maggitt in 2011. Jacques Smith had 5.0 in 2010. 

Barnett also holds the Tennessee record for most sacks in a game by a freshman with 3.0. He has accomplished that mark on two occasions, at Ole Miss on Oct. 18 and at South Carolina on Nov. 1. 

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones has his usual Thursday radio stops this afternoon. 

First, Jones will join Jack Arute on SiriusXM College Sports Nation at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Later today, Jones will make his weekly appearance on 3HL with Brent Dougherty, Blaine Bishop and Mickey Ryan on Nashville's 104.5 The Zone this afternoon at 5:00 p.m. ET. You can listen on 104.5 in Nashville or online RIGHT HERE.
