The latest game this past weekend — where the Vols’ contest versus Texas A&M had roughly 30,000 more Nashville residents tune in when compared to the Titans’ victory over the Miami Dolphins.
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise when looking at their respective success levels. The Titans are sitting currently at 2-3 — whilst the Volunteers are the No. 9 team in the country (with a 5-1 record).
