Tennessee Vs. Vanderbilt Final Score: Eric Gordon Interception Ends OT

Eric Gordon of the Tennessee Volunteers picked off a Jordan Rodgers throw and ran it back to the end zone, appearing to end the game against the Vanderbilt Commodores in dramatic fashion. Referees signaled him down at the spot of the catch, but replays showed he really never came all that close to brushing his knee against the turf.

The Vols, once again, had to be called off the field and back onto the sideline as Knoxville faithful showered boos. But after review, officials had no choice but to reverse the call. Tennessee wins, 27-21.

Vandy came into the game with hopes of clinching a bowl game trip for the second time since 1983, while UT just wanted to ensure it would finish the season with at least one SEC win. Vandy will get another chance next week, while Tennessee likewise needs to win its last game to reach a bowl game.
