Tennessee No Bowl, Again

Posted: Updated:
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

Now that a bowl bid is out of reach, Tennessee heads its final game seeking to avoid becoming the first team in school history to have eight losses.

Tennessee (4-7, 1-6 SEC) never has lost more than seven games in a season. The Volunteers must win at Kentucky (2-9, 0-7) in their season finale to keep that streak alive.

The Vols fell out of bowl contention Saturday with a 14-10 loss to Vanderbilt, which scored the winning touchdown with 16 seconds left. That guaranteed the Vols their fourth consecutive losing season, which hasn't happened at Tennessee since 1903-06.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones says he believes his team is "resilient and will come back, but I feel for them because of all the things they have been through."
