Said Jones,”You look at the scoreboard over the field. It’s going to be a unique experience I think for our fans and obviously for our players. It’s going to be apart of something, the biggest ever. it’s something that’s very, very special. This is why you come to the University of Tennessee to be able to experience events like this.”
