Video emerges from Tennessee band member who passed out during halftime performance
The Tennessee band had a striking incident happen during its halftime performance on Saturday during the game against Georgia State.
A member collapsed on the field, but that didn’t keep the band from stopping mid-routine. The Vols led the Panthers 17-7 at the time, but ultimately lost 38-30 as Georgia State put up 17 fourth-quarter points.
It was unclear what caused the collapse, but the band later tweeted, “Thank you for checking. Everyone is ok. Just had to get into some shade, hydrated and cooled off.”
Between the fire to a boat in the Vol Navy, and the team’s performance on the field, this band incident was just another example of a tough day all around in Knoxville.
Here’s hoping the band members have better hydration practices the rest of the season.
