3. Dan Williams block at Kentucky in OT, 2007:
Tennessee had to defeat Kentucky to win the SEC East and secure its spot in the SEC title game.
In the second OT, Kentucky's kicker and Knoxville native, Lonas Seiber, trotted out to try to kick the game-winning field goal. It was a chip-shot by today's standards and would have easily made it—if not for big Dan Williams.
The block sent the game to another overtime and the Vols eventually won it in four overtimes, 52-50, to continue their now, 25 year win-streak against Kentucky.
2. Travis Stephens 68-yard run at Florida, 2001:
Once again, the Vols controlled their own destiny. Except this time the Vols were the one's that had the monkey on their back.
Tennessee had not won in the Swamp in 30 years. No. 2 Florida was an 18-point favorite and would have had a shot at a national title if they won the game. Of course, so would No. 5 Tennessee, but this one was Florida's to lose.
Thanks to Stephens' 68-yard dash, which set up the one-yard go ahead touchdown run by Jabari Davis with eight minutes to play, the Vols broke the streak and played LSU for the SEC title the next week.
1. Casey Clausen 4th-and-19 at Alabama, 2003:
In the second overtime, Tennessee was faced with a seemingly impossible down and distance.
All the Tide had to do was knock the ball down, hit Clausen, or just have a defender within five yards of receiver C.J. Fayton. None of those happened.
Fayton ran the crossing route to perfection and James Banks did his job of taking the coverage away.
Tennessee won the game six overtimes later, 51-43.
