October 18, 2019 (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) Tennessee defeated Alabama on Friday night 27-20 to move to 4-1 on the season.  After falling behind 0-10 early, the Vols found an offensive rhythm and, along with some adjustments on defense, were able to push across 4 tries to secure the conference win. 

The Volunteers traveled with a reserve side but were only able to get in 15 minutes of action due to the UA RecSports department inexplicably closing the field just as the match got underway -  much to the surprise of both teams.  The Vols were up by two tries after 15 minutes.  

Thanks to the family, Old Boys and fans that made their way to Tuscaloosa to support the team.  Volunteer Rugby support is legendary and very much appreciated.
