Tennessee football fan wonders if Oklahoma will call Josh Heupel home?

What could happen if fans storm the field if Tennessee football beats Alabama

A storm has been brewing for 24 years.

Tennessee football fans held back from storming the field after beating Florida on September 29. 24. UT hadn’t beaten the Gators since 2016 and had lost 16 of their previous 17 meetings. However, if Alabama’s 15-game losing streak is snapped at Neyland Stadium on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS), a sold-out crowd of more than 100,000 might feel compelled to leave their seats in celebration. For the first time since 1989, both No. 8 Tennessee (5-0) and No. 1 Alabama (6-0) enter the “third Saturday in October” undefeated.

The last time Vols fans took to the pitch at Neyland Stadium was in September. On December 19, 1998, when Tennessee beat the Gators in overtime for their first series win since 1992. It was a top-10 game – No. 6 volume against No. 2 Gators – and a declaration win for UT in the 1998 undefeated season en route to a national championship.

There were 107,653 people there that night, many of whom flooded the field after Florida missed a 32-yard field goal to give Tennessee the win. The south goal posts came down with the help of students like Jeremy Racey. A shirtless photo of Racey hanging from the crossbar appeared in the News Sentinel and on T-shirts, giving him some notoriety among fans.
