It's bowl season, and although the Vols are not in a game this season, one of their long-time coaches will be honored.

Friday, the Chick-Fil-A Bowl named the five men it will honor with induction into the bowl's hall of fame for 2012, and Phil Fulmer is on that short list.

Earlier this year, Fulmer was recognized at the Tennessee-Alabama game in honor of joining the College Football Hall of Fame and celebrating the 15th anniversary of the 1997 SEC title team.

Fulmer's latest honor will be for what officials call his overall contribution to the bowl game. Tennessee appeared in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl in back-to-back seasons facing Maryland in 2002 and Clemson in 2003.

Fulmer and the other honorees will be inducted Monday night in an on-field ceremony. LSU plays Clemson. The game will be televised by ESPN at 7:30 p.m.
