Tennessee Is The No. 1 College Football Team In America

For the first time since 1998, Tennessee is the No. 1 team in the country.

What the Vols have done so far in Josh Heupel's second year is pretty clearly the best résumé in college football. Tennessee has a win over Alabama, a 27-point road win over LSU and a 44-6 drubbing of Kentucky. But now UT has to go on the road to No. 3 Georgia on Saturday and back it up. This is nice for now, but everything is going to work itself out on the field.

But make no mistake, haters and losers: we are back. This is the new normal. Welcome to hell.
