Students on the strip also spent most of the night hoping for a Vols win.
WBIR 10News was at Goalpost Tavern where more many of those fans gathered.
They told us while they were disappointed that the Vols lost against Michigan, they were proud of all of the team's accomplishments this year.
"Very proud of the Vols, made it to the Sweet 16; it was a great game," said UT student Jesse Smith.
Many fans said they were also angry with the refs' calls during the game.
That said, most fans are just eager to see the Vols take to the hardwood again in the 2014-2015 season.
