Tennessee faces off against Vanderbilt on Nov. 26 looking to add to its 4-game win streak against the Commodores.

The rivalry between the Vols and Commodores has not exactly been close the past 50 years, but it has seen its share of upsets. With No. 5 visiting Vanderbilt in a few weeks, let’s run down the top 10 biggest upsets in series history.

You know, just in case.

10. Tennessee 12, Vanderbilt 7 – 1947

A few of these top instances can only vaguely be described as upsets. The truth is, Tennessee and Vanderbilt usually won when they were supposed to.

Vanderbilt was building something in the late 40s, trying to chip away at Tennessee which had won the past 7 in dominating fashion. The Commodores finished the year with 1 more win that the Volunteers, who kept the streak alive in Knoxville on Nov. 29, 1947.

9. Vanderbilt 7, Tennessee 6 – 1913

In a matchup similar to the one below, Vanderbilt protected home turf against the Vols, squeaking out another victory. Had Tennessee not missed an extra point the Vols were likely to win.

8. Vanderbilt 20, Tennessee 0 – 1920

Tennessee tied Vanderbilt the year prior after an embarrassing 76-0 victory by the Commodores in 1918. The Vols were out for blood and expected to give the Commodores everything they had.

Instead Vanderbilt, which finished the year 5-3 to Tennessee’s 7-1, throttled the Vols in Knoxville, blanking them 20-0.

7. Tennessee 6, Vanderbilt 0 – 1928

Tennessee had not beaten Vanderbilt since 1916 as was sick of it. The Commodores, who finished the season with just 2 losses, were blanked in a rock fight by none other than General Robert Neyland.

It was Neyland’s first win over the Commodores.

6. Vanderbilt 26, Tennessee 0 – 1954

Tennessee, though not the machine it was under Neyland, was enjoying a nice long winning streak over the Commodores before Vanderbilt decided to do something about it. The Commodores returned the favor for a 46-0 beating in 1952 to lay down a 26-0 smackdown on the Vols.

5. Vanderbilt 28, Tennessee 24 – 2005

This is a big one for Vanderbilt fans.

Tennessee had fallen from grace in 2005. Neither team was playing well, yet Tennessee was still a considerable favorite in Knoxville. Why? History.

In what is still the longest streak in series history, Tennessee had won 22 straight over the Commodores and were championed to add to it. Instead, Vanderbilt and Jay Cutler waltzed into Neyland Stadium and shocked the Vols, 28-24.

4. Tennessee 20, No. 19 Vanderbilt 14 – 1955

This is the 2nd unranked vs. ranked upset in series history for both teams. Vanderbilt, after a couple of rough years, was putting together a stout team while Tennessee rebuilt following Neyland’s retirement. Just a year after the Commodores blasted Tennessee 26-0 (see above), the Vols earned their payback.

Tennessee kicked off a 4-game winning streak over the No. 19 Commodores, 20-14.

3. Tennessee 10, No. 15 Vanderbilt 6 – 1958

Tennessee liked playing upset in the 1950s.

The Commodores, who went on to win the Gator Bowl with a 5-2 record, were looking to end that previously mentioned winning streak but instead fell in a defensive battle, 10-6. The Commodores had won or tied 5 straight heading into the final game of the regular season against the Vols.

2. Tennessee 26, No. 12 Vanderbilt 7 – 1941

30,000 people were in attendance for Tennessee’s biggest upset over Vanderbilt in series history. The Vols faced off against No. 12 Vanderbilt, which had just scored an enormous victory over No. 7 Alabama, a team that would later claim a share of the National Championship.

Tennessee was no slouch, but Vanderbilt was considered one of the best teams in the country at the time on a 5-game winning streak. In a game that was expected to be a close Vanderbilt victory, Tennessee made the Commodores look silly, 26-7.

Because of the win, the Vols finished 2nd in the SEC behind Mississippi State.

1. Vanderbilt 45, No. 17 Tennessee 34 – 2016

Vanderbilt’s greatest upset over Tennessee was around when people really started wondering if the Butch Jones experiment would work out in Knoxville. Maybe Tennessee fans should thank the Commodores for this embarrassment looking back on it.

At the time, there was nothing to be thankful about for Vols fans. Tennessee was 8-3 with a Sugar Bowl appearance on the line. Vanderbilt, at 5-7, was fighting for the chance to play in the Independence Bowl. Tennessee had beaten No. 25 Georgia and a strong Florida squad while Vanderbilt had needed overtime to beat Western Kentucky earlier in the year.

Let’s look at the talent on that Vols team, which of course lost to the Commodores by 11. You’ve got Alvin Kamara, Josh Dobbs, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Derek Barnett, Cam Sutton, Jauan Jennings, Emmanuel Moseley. Jalen Hurd and Marquez Callaway – all of whom went on to play in the NFL with varying degrees of success.

But Vanderbilt was the better team when it mattered. Kyle Shurmur and Ralph Webb were too much for a Tennessee defense that seemed gassed, both accounting for 2 touchdowns on the day. Shurmur finished with 416 passing yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
