More than 100,000 orange-clad fans pack Neyland Stadium for every home game on fall Saturdays in one of those picturesque settings that defines college football. The stadium, located on the banks of the Tennessee River, is named after Gen. Robert Neyland, who served three different stints as the Vols' head coach in between military duty. There's also the orange and white checkerboard end zones, the Vol Navy and the Pride of the Southland Band forming the giant "T" for the team to run through at the beginning of every game. And if the Vols are winning and scoring lots of touchdowns, get ready for one rendition after another of "Rocky Top," a song that stirs the blood of Tennessee fans and Tennessee foes alike. -- Chris Low
