Insider Report: Vols drop down SEC bowl pecking order

From reacting to the post-game press conference to Derek Barnett's place in Tennessee history to the Vols' bowl picture, we tackle it all in the Insider Report.

NASHVILLE — Any hopes Tennessee had of reaching the Sugar Bowl for the first time since 1991 were dashed by a 45-34 loss at Vanderbilt on Saturday night.

The Volunteers now sit at 8-4 overall and 4-4 in the Southeastern Conference. Those marks fall well short of preseason expectations, including no Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title in spite of beating both Florida and Georgia.
