KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Despite a loss, the Vols are hoping to use momentum gained from a solid performance at Alabama last Saturday.

The University of Tennessee Director of Athletics Phillip Fulmer is calling all Vols fans.

In a letter, Fulmer writes, “I’m calling on Vol Nation to show up and respond to the effort you’ve seen from our team in recent weeks. Your passionate support fuels and inspires our team—I can’t overstate the importance of the role you play.”

He references past home game atmospheres.

“I get chills thinking back to the first half of our game against Georgia two weeks ago. That is how Neyland is supposed to feel.”
