KNOXVILLE, TN- The Tennessee Vols moved up two spots in the AP Top 25 poll Sunday following Saturday’s win over Virginia Tech.
The Vols went from 17th to 15th in the rankings. Tennessee tumbled 8 spots the week before despite taking down Appalachian State in the team’s season opener. It was the second biggest drop by a winning team since the poll expanded to 25 teams in 1989. But if you think the Vols care about that number, well, they don’t
“I don’t care about a number in front of Tennessee,” said Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara. That ‘T’ is all I care about honestly. I think we feel good about what we did on the field. I don’t care about somebody talking about we dropped or we rose or I don’t care. Really if I could do something for a number to not be said, i would.”
