"Meeting Tennessee in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will be a tremendous challenge and opportunity for our football program. We are playing a program that has been outstanding for many years, especially in the last 11 years under Phillip Fulmer. He has won the national championship within the last five years and has been ranked in the top 10 in the nation this season."
"We have played well at the end of the season, but we are playing a team that has won its last six games, including a landmark victory at Miami (FL), a victory that broke a long home winning
streak for Miami. To beat Miami at Miami is quite an accomplishment."
"Tennessee is a well coached team that excels in all phases for the game. They have an experienced, efficient quarterback in
Casey Clausen, and have a solid running game behind an outstanding offensive line. On defense they rank in the top 20 in the nation in
pass defense, scoring defense and total defense. Four of the last five teams have failed to reached double figures against their defense.
"Historically, Tennessee is outstanding when it comes to special teams and that is the case this year. They have a punter and a punt return specialist who rank in the top five in the nation."
"Coach Fulmer has won over 80 percent of his games at Tennessee for a reason. He always has his teams well prepared in every phase of the game."
