On the heels of a dominating 38-point win over Vanderbilt last Saturday, Tennessee’s win by 28 points, gave the Vols consecutive conference wins by 66 points. The two-game margin of victory, is the largest in a pair of conference games since also winning by 66 in back-to-back games in 1965.

All five Vols starters scored in double-figures for the second time this season vs. Auburn. Tennessee has won seven games in a row vs. Auburn including a 3-0 mark at Auburn Arena.
