The Tennessee Volunteers football team represents the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The Vols compete in the Eastern Division of the SEC in the NCAA. The team played their first season in 1891 and have a combined record of 804-361-53 ranking them tenth on the list of all-time won-lost records and eighth on the by-victories list for college football programs. They're also second on the all-time win/loss list of SEC programs which makes them one of the most successful football programs in NCAA history. The Vols all-time ranking in bowl appearances is third and sixth in all-time bowl victories, most notably four Sugar Bowls, three Cotton Bowls, an Orange Bowl and a Fiesta Bowl. They boast 16 conference championships and six national titles in their history and their last national championship was in the 1998 college football season.
The Vols play at historic Neyland Stadium, where Tennessee has an all-time winning record of 445 games, the highest home-field total in college football history for any school in the nation at its current home venue. Additionally, its 102,455 seat capacity makes Neyland the nation's fourth largest stadium. The team is currently coached by Butch Jones.
Most people think "Rocky Top" is the official Tennessee fight song, but it's not. "Down the Field" is the official fight song. It is, however, the most popular in use by the "Pride of the Southland Marching Band." It's also widely recognized as one of the most hated by opponents in collegiate sports.
