HAND OF GOD

Knoxville, Tenn. | Nov. 14, 1998

Tennessee's reign at No. 1 looked as if it wouldn't last one game. No. 10, unbeaten Arkansas led, 24-22, and had the ball with less than 2:00 to go. But then guard Brandon Burlsworth stepped on quarterback Clint Stoerner's foot, causing Stoerner to stumble and -- ouch -- fumble. The Volunteers recovered at the Arkansas 43, and Tennessee scored the winning touchdown with :28 left. After that, how could Tennessee not finish No. 1?
