Twitter certainly took notice of Tennessee’s comeback, upset win against Georgia on Saturday. Here are some of the social media highlights during and following the 38-31 win.
ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum, who is a Tennessee graduate, said coach Butch Jones had a good feeling early Saturday.
Butch Jones told me this morning, "We're going to make our fans proud of us." Mission accomplished. What an amazing victory.

Former Vols receiver Peerless Price, who was a part of the 1998 National Championship team, enjoyed the Vols’ win deep in the heart of The Peach State.

Highly-touted Tennessee quarterback commitment Jarrett Guarantano from Bergen Catholic in Oradell, N.J., certainly appreciated the win and those that may be blocking for him one day. He is committed to the Vols for 2016.

If anyone can show just how much energy was in Neyland Stadium, it’s former Volunteer quarterback Sterling Henton, who caught the camera’s eye during the CBS broadcast.

Jones made a prudent decision when he decided to punt instead of going for it on fourth-and-1 on the Vols’ final possession. Financial guru and Tennessee grad Dave Ramsey surely approved.

Once the Vols were finally victorious, sophomore tailback Jalen Hurd decided it was time to strike up the band as former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning did almost 20 years ago.
