Feels Like 98 Countdown to Kick Off: Day 10
Auburn vs Tennessee 1998
After scoring 17 unanswered points in the first quater the Tennessee Volunteers seemed to go cold in this one. The Vols were held scorless for the rest of the game relying on the defense to carry the load and in usual fashion they did just that. Holding Auburn to a field goal in each of the final 3 quarters, Tennessee held on to win the game 17-9. "From our standpoint, the day belongs to the defense," Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer said. "We didn't get a lot done on offense in the second half. We got 17 points and we couldn't do much after that."
