Tennessee leads the series against Vanderbilt 70-27-5, having won 25 of the last 26 meetings. UT?s lone loss in that stretch was a 28-24 decision in 2005. Two years ago, Tennessee rallied for its largest fourth-quarter comeback in Neyland Stadium history to defeat the Commodores 25-24. Last season, Eric Berry's interception return for a touchdown helped the Vols to a 20-10 triumph.
