Lady Vol great Candace Parker was excited for the football team as well.

Tennessee punter Trevor Daniel kicked one ball 70-yards down the field, but found time to give a shout out to one of his teammates.
Great team win! Proud to be a vol🍊 Especially proud of @CallawayMarquez— Trevor Daniel (@TrevorDaniel93) September 5, 2017
John Kelly had four touchdowns on the ground. I think people noticed.

Think RB John Kelly is ready to go? He's the only player on the field with his helmet on during early warmups. Does a little dance, too. pic.twitter.com/G5h5KrtkHa— Jesse Simonton (@JesseReSimonton) September 4, 2017

Walk-on lineman Paul Bain blocked the potential Georgia Tech game-winning field goal.

Bain stayed humble through it all.

The real star of the night, however, was the trash can tagging along on the sideline.
When Tennessee is on defense, there is a trash can being held up on the sideline.

Apparently, it's called the "Hunt the Ball" trash can. When players on defense get a turnover, they run over and dunk the ball in the trash can. Apparently, they have to take out the trash.

One person was such a fan of the concept, they created a Trash Can account.
At last check, Trash Can already had nearly 2,000 followers. Amazing.
But in the excitement of it all, Darrell Taylor, who made the game-saving tackle on Georgia Tech's two-point conversion, let something slip.
