Stay warm, Smokey.
It’s a chilly night at Neyland Stadium, where Tennessee is hosting Missouri. As of play late in the third quarter Saturday, it was 46 degrees in Knoxville. Anyone without a sweatshirt or a jacket likely wishes they were bundled up at the moment.
Consider Smokey among the fortunate.
Check out the photos below of the Vols’ mascot wearing what appears to be an orange sweatshirt as the Volunteers tangle with the Tigers. Smokey deserves a hat tip for the fashion sense here. That sweatshirt is stellar, and it definitely brings out the color of Smokey’s eyes. (We think.)

Fortunately, the Vols are doing their part to make Smokey’s Saturday tolerable. They hold a 35-27 lead entering the fourth quarter as they attempt to improve to 8-3 overall and 4-3 in the SEC.
