The Tennessee Volunteers stayed in the top five of both polls this week following a road loss to No. 3/1/1 Georgia on Saturday. The Vols took the fifth spot in the Associated Press Top 25, while also ranking fifth in the USA TODAY AFCA Coaches Poll.
It marks the first time since 2002 that Tennessee has spent four consecutive weeks in the AP Top 25, doing so the first five weeks of that season.
This season, the Vols have spent 10 consecutive weeks inside the AP Top 25 poll and the last seven inside the top-10. It marks Tennessee’s longest streak of top-10 rankings since 2001 when the Vols went eight-straight weeks as a top-10 team.
Tennessee (8-1) looks to keep its strong season rolling as it returns to Neyland Stadium for Senior Day against Missouri at 11 a.m. Saturday on CBS.
