KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The national spotlight shined on old Rocky Top Monday morning as The TODAY Show's Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford hung out with hundreds of UT fans in front of Ayres Hall.
The Orange and White contingent was in full force and student-athletes from a variety of Tennessee teams there to greet Hoda and Kathie Lee. Ayres Hall was the place to be this morning.
"We've been here only about 12 hours and I've never experienced such school spirit in my life!" Gifford said to the crowd.
Fans camped out in the early morning for their chance to see Hoda and Kathie Lee up close. Pat Summitt stopped by to welcome them to campus and Kip Moore performed a live concert at the end of the show on the south lawn.
