Pig Howard wasn't the hero that day.
KNOXVILLE - With an opportunity to put Tennessee up a score in overtime, Pig Howard felt the game slip right through his fingers.
After marching down the field on its first and only overtime possession, Tennessee lost the ball and ultimately the game on a costly fumble that led to a touchback. The play was initially ruled a touchdown on the field, but an official review marked the ball as lost before Howard reached the end zone. Defensive end Ray Drew only needed one extra look at the play.
"Whenever that replay was up I actually said it before they reviewed it," Drew said. "When the video confirmed it, it was like a big weight was lifted off our shoulders."
