Chris White had one opportunity and he made the most of it.
As a fifth-year senior in 1985, White made his first career start in the season opener against UCLA as an injury replacement. Three interceptions later, White had secured his place as the Vols' starter the rest of the season. He recorded nine interceptions on the season to lead the NCAA. White ended with 62 tackles and three fumble recoveries.
His place in the Tennessee secondary that Cinderella season earned him All-America honors as the Vols went on to become SEC champions and defeat No. 2 Miami 35-7 in the Sugar Bowl for a 9-1-2 and No. 4 national finish.
