    Tennessee’s Saturday night showdown with Ole Miss created an abundance of drama at Neyland Stadium. The Rebels held on to win a thriller, 31-26.

    Ole Miss jumped out to a first quarter lead thanks to a muffed Tennessee punt and strong play from Matt Corral.

    The game ended in mayhem as Tennessee students and fans rained all sorts of objects including beer, a golf ball and a mustard bottle.

    Even after the incident, Tennessee’s defense forced a stop and the Vols got inside the Rebels’ red zone with one last chance to win.

    Heupel discussed the ugly scene near the end of the game, the electric atmosphere for the game’s first 58 minutes and the mistakes that led to his team’s loss.

    Here’s everything Josh Heupel said postgame.


    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
