Several are basking in the glory of Tennessee’s recent 52-49 victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide, including former players who had to go up against a largely unbeatable Nick Saban team during their time in Knoxville.

“I’m passionate about the University of Tennessee,” Jennings said. “And to see those guys go out there and do what they did, it means a lot… I know the hard work they put into it and like I said, I’ve been in that spot before, so I know the feeling.. I can only imagine.”

Jennings play 5 seasons at Tennessee with 146 catches for 2,153 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns.
