Vols Climb to No. 6 in AP Top 25, Hold At No. 8 in Coaches Poll



Following its third ranked victory of the season over No. 25 LSU, the Tennessee Volunteers climbed in the polls once again, ascending two spots to No. 6 in the Associated Press Top 25 and holding at No. 8 in the USA TODAY AFCA Coaches Poll.

Tennessee (5-0, 2-0 SEC) has climbed to its highest position in the AP poll since Sept. 11, 2005, when it held the No. 5 ranking. The Vols have spent three consecutive weeks in the top-10 for the first time since Oct. 15 to Nov. 5, 2006.

Tennessee will face a ranked opponent for the third consecutive game. The Vols welcome AP No. 3 and Coaches No. 1 Alabama to Rocky Top for the Third Saturday in October. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on CBS and tickets for the contest are sold out. Season tickets for the 2023 Tennessee football season are on sale now at

The rankings mark the first time the game will be between top-10 teams since the 2016 season. It’s the first time since 1989 that both teams enter the contest undefeated.
