Tennessee jumps nine spots in AP Poll
The increase comes after the Vols won in overtime against the Pittsburgh Panthers.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Associated Press announced its new Top-25 college poll after the games in week two, and Tennessee jumped nine spots to #15.
The increase comes after the Vols won against the No. 17 Pittsburgh Panthers in an away game that went into overtime.
Tennessee didn’t even make the cut before the start of the season. The Vols were on the outside looking in, receiving enough votes to be ranked at the would-be 26th position.
With this game, Head Coach Josh Heupel became the first Tennessee coach to win against a top-20 opponent in each of his first two seasons.
This is the first time the Vols have ranked in the top 15 since 2020 when Tennessee earned the No. 14 spot after a win against Missouri.
