Can you blame Butch Jones for shedding a tear after that play?
Tennessee just gave us the best finish of the college football season with a Hail Mary game winner at Georgia. Butch Jones was emotional after his team pulled off the comeback win capped off by an incredible play:

That is the look of pure joy, folks.
Things did not look good for Tennessee on Saturday. It got off to yet another slow start and was facing a 17-0 deficit late in the second quarter.
The Vols battled back and took a 28-24 lead with 2:56 left in the contest as they forced and recovered a fumble in the end zone. Jacob Eason and the Bulldogs drove 81 yards on just four plays however and grabbed a 31-28 advantage with 10 seconds left on the clock.
Josh Dobbs and the Vols had one chance to throw a Hail Mary as time expired, and they pulled it off as Dobbs found Jauan Jennings in the end zone.
