KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee is about to set off a celebration 11 years in the making.

With four second-half touchdown passes from quarterback Joshua Dobbs and another one on the ground, he carried the Volunteers from an 18-point halftime deficit to an astonishing 38-28 comeback win.

It erased more than a decade of futility against UT's SEC East rivals.

Now, the Vols find themselves 4-0, a poor 3½ games behind them and the favorites to win the division. All of this in the wake of the Gators talking trash all week, including defensive back Quincy Wilson likening the Vols to a duck and UF a truck.

"Just one play at a time," UT head coach Butch Jones told CBS when asked after the game what he told his team at halftime. "We didn't play our best football in the first half; we knew that. It was all on us… 

"That duck is pulling that truck, baby."

Tennessee's defense was outstanding in the second half without stars Cameron Sutton, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Darrin Kirkland Jr., who were all injured. The offense did the rest in a game that will be remembered on Rocky Top for a long time.
