Tennessee survived a close-call in the first game of the 2016 season, but the Vols didn't come away unscathed. They took a big hit in the polls.
UT fell from No. 9 to No. 17 in this week's AP Top 25 Poll, which was released Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile in the coaches poll the Vols fell just four spots from No. 10 to No. 14.
College football's opening weekend was a wild one. Two top five-ranked teams lost on the opening weekend, something that hasn't happened since 1972.
The SEC as a whole struggled in its first games. Seven of the conference's 14 teams lost their first games, including LSU being upset by Wisconsin.
Alabama and Clemson remained at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the AP poll.
