Tennessee dropped a heartbreaker on Saturday, losing 41-34 at home against Pittsburgh on an afternoon when it made one mistake after another in front of a raucous crowd at Neyland Stadium.

Penalties, turnovers, and an inability to get off the field on 3rd down for much of the game all cost the Volunteers a chance to move to 2-0 under new coach Josh Heupel.
