KNOXVILLE – Orange-clad fans poured into Neyland Stadium on Thursday night to welcome a new season of football on Rocky Top.
Over 92,000 fans filled the stands despite it being a Thursday night with school and jobs waiting on Friday morning. The Vols got the season off on the right foot with a 59-10 shellacking of the visiting Ball State Cardinals.
By the time the fourth quarter began, many had departed their seats and headed for their vehicles knowing that the game was well in hand.
Tennessee travels to Pittsburgh next week looking for revenge after last year’s loss in Knoxville.
