Following a historic 52-49 victory over No. 3/1 Alabama, the Tennessee Volunteers climbed once again in both the Associated Press Top 25 and the USA TODAY AFCA Coaches Poll, rising to No. 3 in the AP and No. 4 in the coaches.

Tennessee (6-0, 3-0 SEC) coupled 15 first-place votes with its No 3-ranking in the AP, representing the first time since Sept. 12, 1999, that the Vols earned such votes. Tennessee’s No. 3 ranking is its highest in the AP since opening the 2005 season in the same spot.

The Vols are the only team in America with four victories over AP Top 25 teams at the time of the meeting. They are the first team in college football history to start a season 6-0, beat four AP Top 25 opponents ranked at the time of the meeting and score at least 30 points in the first six games of a single season.

Tennessee returns to Neyland Stadium next Saturday for Homecoming against UT Martin at noon ET on SEC Network. Tickets for the contest are available in limited quantities at AllVols.com. In addition, season tickets for the 2023 campaign are on sale now at AllVols.com.
