1983 Florida Citrus Bowl



TENNESSEE - 30
MARYLAND - 23

Dec. 17, 1983

ORLANDO -- The Vols closed out their finest season since 1972, scoring two fourth quarter touchdowns to defeat Maryland 30-23, before a sellout crowd of 50,500 and millions more on ESPN.

Johnnie Jones and Alan Cockrell were the Vols' offensive stickouts. Jones gained 154 yards on 29 carries and tallied twice, part of the Vols 201-yard ground attack. Cockrell completed 16 of 23 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown. Clyde Duncan caught six passes for 59 yards and Lenny Taylor caught four for 68 yards and one touchdown.

The Vols were led on defense by linebacker Alvin Toles, who recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass, both efforts leading to Vol scores. The Vols also held the Terrapins to 95 yards on the ground.

The Vols finished the year No. 15 by The New York Times, No. 17 by USA Today and No. 14 by Sports Illustrated.
