Scout.com’s Randy Moore provides some context for this Saturday’s matchup between the Tennessee Volunteers and the Memphis Tigers. He recalls a memory from way back in 1988:
As we approached the game site, fans of the Memphis State Tigers lined the street and chanted “Oh-and-six! Oh-and-six! Oh-and-six!” The Vols limped into that ’88 game with an 0-6 record, so MSU’s players and fans were drooling at the prospect of posting their first win in series history. UT had won the previous 11 meetings but this Tennessee team appeared terribly vulnerable. The defense was so bad that coordinator Ken Donahue had resigned one game earlier.
Vol fans chanted “Oh-and-twelve!” after beating the Tigers 38-25.
