The Third Saturday in October


I’m a lifelong Tennessee Volunteers fan. I know all the traditions, all the words to “Rocky Top”, “I will Give my ALL for Tennessee Today!”, “Vol Walk”, “Vol Navy”, the “Battle for the Barrel”(they don’t do that one anymore)

Until a few days ago, I thought “The Third Saturday in October” was the day when my football Vols played the Alabama Crimson Tide. It’s true, that is when they play. Even though there have been a few seasons where things didn’t line up, and they’ve played on the First, Second or even Last Saturday in October. I happened to Google “The Third Saturday in October” the other day, and was surprised to see that it is actually the name of the rivalry.

Learn something new every day. Go BIG Orange!
