There is still half of the season to play, but the Tennessee Volunteers have had a 2013 campaign worthy of midseason awards. At 4-3, the Vols have competed hard against the SEC East's best, winning one and taking another into overtime. These players and coaches deserve some recognition, so here are some midseason awards.
Even before the South Carolina game, the feeling in Knoxville had changed. After a near-disaster against South Alabama, the Vols found their stride against the No. 6 and No. 11 teams in the country. Due to the terrific play of certain offensive and defensive players, Tennessee finds itself just two wins away from a bowl berth.
In addition to offensive and defensive MVPs, you'll see best play and coach, most improved player, best rookie and most surprising star. These are the guys who've brought life back into the program.
