Tennessee Football: 5 Most Devastating Losses in Vols History

For Volunteers fans, Tennessee's 38-30 loss to Georgia State last weekend was embarrassing, but not devastating. While the program was regularly contending for national championships less than 20 years ago, fans' expectations have considerably lowered. Saturday's loss now means the Vols could go 6-6 or worse and not even make a bowl game. It's kind of like the 13-7 loss to Wyoming in 2008 the week head coach Phillip Fulmer was fired during a 5-7 season.

Quarterback play is always in the spotlight during the preseason or throughout the course of a regular season for all 130 college football teams. And that's especially true after Week 1, as every program got its first look at a new starter under center. The 2019 season is all about the transfer portal and quarterbacks that found a new home. As expected, Jalen Hurts thrived in his debut at Oklahoma, Kelly Bryant put up huge numbers in a Missouri loss at Wyoming, and Justin Fields impressed in Ohio State's easy vcitory over FAU.
