After Appalachian State botched managing the clock in the fourth quarter, tied at 13, Tennessee had the first shot in overtime. After two failed -and goal attempts, Dobbs took the ball himself on third down and attempted to extend over the plane, only to get rocked and fumble into the end zone.

Jalen Hurd was there to luckily scoop up the loose ball for the score, Tennessee would stop App. State and survive as the No. 9 team in the country.
