In 1938 Bowden Wyatt captained the Gen. Robert R. Neyland-led troops to an 11-0 season while playing right end on a loaded Volunteers team that included Hall of Fame names such as Molinski, Suffridge and Cafego in the days of the two-way player.
The Vols had six shutouts on the season. The final shutout capped the year with Wyatt manning the defensive line and kicking a field goal in Tennessee's 17-0 Orange Bowl victory over Oklahoma, the Vols' first official bowl game. That 1938 season, Tennessee outscored its opponents 283-16 with Wyatt on the defensive line.
Wyatt later returned to Tennessee as head coach in 1955. He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame as a player in 1972 and as a coach in 1997.
