The Vols lead the series against the Commodores 69-27-5, including a 34-17-4 advantage in Nashville. Tennessee has won 24 of the last 25 games in the series since Vanderbilt's most recent home win against the Vols back in 1982. Since then, UT's only loss was a 28-24 decision three years ago in Knoxville. Last season, Tennessee turned in the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in Neyland Stadium history, rallying from a 15-point deficit for a 25-24 victory.
