1894 AND 1895 THE LOST YEARS NO OFFICIAL TEAM
In October 1894, the Athletic Association resolved to drop varsity football and look forward to baseball in the spring. After the humiliating 1893 season (two wins and four imposing defeats), only two athletes willing to admit they had played on the 1893 team returned to campus in 1894. To complicate matters further, the practice field, located just west of the main entrance to the Hill, was being graded and improved.

Soon after this decision, W.B. Stokely, a UT senior who transferred from Wake Forest, persuaded a group of students to form a team. Stokely, who was elected captain, gave encouragement and direction to the other players. Even though the institution chose not to be represented officially on the gridiron, Stokely and his unofficial team kept football interest alive during this period when almost certainly it otherwise would have been allowed to lapse completely.

Listed below are games in which these teams competed. These unofficial games are not included in NCAA statistics or in official University of Tennessee won-lost records.
