Third Saturday in October

Today my beloved Vols take on the defending national champs, yearly referred to as the Third Saturday in October. Lately the games haven't quite gone the way that we'd like them to, but it's always the official entrance of fall in East Tennessee. The autumn foliage is putting on its finest show and the crisp air from the Smoky Mountains briskly blows by the Tennessee River and Neyland Stadium, the best place in America to watch a football game.

The program is from 1948 and Tennessee won that Saturday 21-6. Not sure the thought behind the program design, but the Tennessee/Alabama football game stirs emotions of all kinds for fans of both teams. Let's see another big win for the VOLS!

  1. I enjoyed meeting you yesterday at the Bloggers meet-up. I look forward to watching Neyland Stadium turn from orange to red, those two lovely fall colors. RTR!
