Needing a victory to keep bowl hopes alive and to fend off negativity, Tennessee got exactly what the doctor ordered with an exciting 27-21 victory over Vanderbilt at Neyland Stadium on Saturday night.

"The black cloud over Knoxville blew away tonight, and we got a little sunshine," Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said.

The seniors were sent out in style and the team improved to 5-6 overall and 1-6 in Southeastern Conference play.
