This is different.
As reported by Wes Rucker of GoVols247, a Tennessee fan was escorted from Neyland Stadium on Saturday by police during the Vols-Kentucky game for throwing a paper airplane. Apparently, another paper airplane hit the officer during the walk out.

But this isn’t the first time paper airplanes have made an appearance at Neyland Stadium. Last Saturday, there were sightings during Tennessee’s rout of Tennessee Tech.
Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs is an aerospace engineering major, so there’s something fitting about this rousing development on Rocky Top.
There are paper airplanes and paper balls being thrown in Neyland stadium.

As for Saturday’s action, Tennessee is in strong shape against Kentucky. The Volunteers lead 35-16 to start the fourth quarter.
