Tennessee alumni react to 27-24 win against South Carolina: “A Vol win is a Vol win”
That was easily the emotion most often expressed on Twitter after Tennessee held on to beat South Carolina 27-24.
After all, the Vols blew a 17-point lead. That made losses to Oklahoma, Florida and Arkansas all too easy to recall. Tennessee lost leads of at least 13 points to each of those teams. However, there would be no déjà vu this time.
Here are some former Vols’ thoughts on game day:
Former quarterback Tyler Bray and former offensive lineman Zach Fulton were in attendance. Both are currently with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Former Vols receiver Peerless Price knows all about the NFL. Even an offensive player can celebrate a great forced fumble to win the game.

Former Tennessee defensive back Jeremy Lincoln also enjoyed the win, even making reference to former Vols quarterback Sterling Henton, who is now a D.J. and football analyst.
