Did you hear that?
I think that loud screaming you heard was Knoxville celebrating the latest Tennessee comeback win. After falling behind 17–0 in the game, Tennessee closes out the game on a 34–14 run, stealing the game from the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens with a Hail Mary pass from Joshua Dobbs to Jauan Jennings. If you listen closely, you can hear a lone face screaming “OMAHAAAAAAAAAAA!”
This is the Volunteers fourth come back win this season. They are now 4–0 when down by 10 or more points. There is no telling how many white hairs were grown watching the game, but the stress of Tennessee fans can be felt everywhere.
Check out these last five possessions:
-Tennessee takes down Georgia Quarterback Jacob Eason in in his own end zone to take the lead with 2:56 left in the game. 28–24 Tennessee.

In the SEC, Tennessee has no breaks. They face Texas A&M in College Station next week.
