Tennessee started the season with a 1-4 record, and a bowl game looked like a pipe dream. Now, that dream has become a reality.
The Vols improved to 6-5 on the season by beating Missouri 24-20 on the road on Saturday night. Tennessee set school records on offense and played well enough on defense to secure the victory, and now the Vols are bowl eligible for the first time since 2016.
The RTI team grades Tennessee’s performance on a position-by-position basis after every game. Managing editor Nathanael Rutherford and staff writer Ben McKee share their grades after the Vols’ 24-20 win over Missouri.
Here are our marks from Tennessee’s fourth-straight win this season.
