Season summary[edit]

Vanderbilt[edit]

Red Rainey scored Tennessee's touchdown. Goat Carroll missed the kick.[1] Tennessee's right guard S. D. Bayer drew a 33-yard, half the distance to the goal penalty for slugging, and was ejected by umpire Bradley Walker. The first down after, Hord Boensch threw a touchdown pass to Enoch Brown. Brown ran the last ten yards shaking off several defenders.[1] Boensch kicked goal and won the game for Vanderbilt.
