Touchdowns and a Field Coal Account For the Tennes-see Score, While Alabama's Only Score Was on Fumble. Volunteers Outpoint Opponents in Every Department of Play, Except at Kicking, at Which VandeGraaf Has Few Equals and No Superiors Volunteers' Victory Due to Exceptional Team Work, Every Man Being in the Game . '. . at All Stages. . f ' - Before the largest crowd that ever ' attended a football game in this city, -aboi'.t two thousand persons being in at,-i tnr!iincf , Jthe University of Tennessee f taam - defeated the University of Ala-. lim -eleven Saturday afternoon on ; Wait field by the score of seventeen to ' even. . . .- :Tlie score, however, does not indicate ?"fairlv the strength at the two ihTPns. ' for. -as they "played yeisterday, Temjes- aee is easily four or .five touehdowns bet ' ter tbn Alabama, and should not nave " bern 'scored tpon. A fumble, unlucky ijr ituuessee, oui uiosi lucsy lor aijl-' bam, enabled the Crimson team to score n touchdown early in the second ouar- - tcr nna saved it from the humiliation tft shuo-out. It was VandeGraaf, the Star punter and tackle of Coach Graves - team-, that captured the ball when it ' was fumbled in tnidf ield by ' Captain Jvelly, and raced forty-five yards for a touchdown. To VandeCiraaf thus belongs the atitled distinction of being the first . Man to cross Tennessee's goal line tnis aeascn. Tennessee clearly outplayed the Alar oanm team, which was without the ser-vlcs of its quarterback,, Jopiin, who was , iirotested by Tennessee upon the ' gronuds that he played professional ball last , summer, and the best that he could do for his eleven was to -act as llne?m:tu. In every department except iu kicking. Tennessee snrtuissed Alabama. VsuaeUraaf, however, is much the besl kicke: that has been seen on Wait field in ninor moons, and but for the bioting of this fellow, Tennessee in all probability would have rolled up a larger core.' ; . - . Alabama Eliminated. By defeating Alabama, Tennessee eliminated another contender for S. I. A. A championship honors, and also Ptrensthened the claims of partisans of I'lltUICClS lUll I J 111 (Ml JZ gardc-d seriously when- aspirants foi championship honors are considered. Right now. Tennessee "looms big" on the horizon, and m fact is scarcely overshadowed by an eleven in the association. Although the "cup of joy -of the Tennessee followers was filled to over-tlawtayesterday, for some, elation was ringed wlth regret because Jopiin wVi-s out e,f the game, for -they were confi dent that Tennessee yesterday eonid have beaten Alabama at its "best, and then the Crimaon partisans would have Lad no possible "alibi." The victory of yesterday- was particularly appreciated because it was the. second the Volunteer have ever scored at the expense of the Crimson aggregation. Once, some . ten ears ago, Tennessee defeated Alabama on the gridiron, but there have been in many defeats for the Volnnteers since that time that the memory of the victory has been just ahout effaced. Yesterday's victory will be long remembered, though, for it was clean-cut, and there was no doubt' that the best teatft won. Credit for the victory should be divided just about equally among the eleven members of the Tennessee team, lor each one of them was in there- all the time, playing 'the game and showing - at a little superiority over the min iif.-iinst him on the other team. It was not a "one-man team" that defeated rnjr jit- - - f yf - mm it "TUBBY" VAXDERGR.UIT Left Tackle For tbe Crimom Y1m Is One of .Games Best Kickers ft ll If 1 "TUBBY" IjOXO Captain and I-uIIback For the Alabama Eleven. Alabama, but a football machine with eleven parts working smoothly and in perfect harmony. Of course, the work of some of the members of the team waa more sensational than that of others, but after all, it was team play more than anything else that won. Tennessee's forwards opened up great holes in the "thin red line" of Alabama, so that the Tonnes-see backs could plunge through for nice gains, and the oackfield players could always be counted upon to find the opening. The Tennessee line clearly outplayed the Alabama line, and the fame may be said concerning the Tennessee backs as compared to those on Coach Graves' team. . r ill li lk n ei i A L iir!u. Tennewtee'spomta were all -earned and the scoring was done after the Volnn-tters .carried the ball down tie t ieid wlthhr atriking distance of the goal of Alabama. The two touchdowns, which were made in the first quarter, were I cored on forward passes, - and . almost J ; t. l . perfect ones at that, for practically every member of th- Tennessee team got ato- the plays.- which were perfected by three men. After carrying the. ball to ihe 35-yard Kne ia the first.. fluarter. after about ten minutes of play, a forward- pass, Thoniarn to May to Cameron down the west side of the field, enabled "Scotty" to cross the line with the Volunteers' first touchdown, and Carroll kicked an easy goal. As the touchdown was made when thebalj was set' in play "fr7i the 35-yard line, the spectators were almost crazed, it seemed when Cameron touched the ball; down behind the goal posts, and then followed n burst of cheering that must have been heard far' from Wait field. A little later, the Volunteers carried the tall on line bucks and end runs down the field to the 23-yard line, and again the forward pass was tried. This tin'e, May passed the ball to '--Carroli, who sped down the east side of. the fie'.d a'Jd took the pass behind' the goal line, touching the ball down behind the goa.1 post, so tliat he eould kick an eany goa! a little later, making the score fourteen to nothing at the close of the first i!riod of play. Alabama's Score. . Ear'y in the second quarter, the Alabama team, w-hich has always been "lucky": against Tennessee,-, scored its only points. The qnarter opened with the bah hi Tennessee's -possession on the" Go-yard line. .ftBd consistent gaius by Land-say. Cameron anil May carried it to the center of the field. Captain Kelly was called . back 'to" carry ' the ball, Hnd in souse manner it was. knocked from his firms into the arms of VandeGraaf, who. screened by four or five of his teaui-ni!it.s until all of the Tennessee play-xr h"l been eluded, ran forty-five yards for a touchdown,1 and then kicked goai. Inte in the fourth quarter, VandeGraaf tried for a goal from placement from the 45-yard line, but the ball went wild. Tennessee's other points, 'Were made in ecorid quarter, aiso; when "Soctty" Cameron drop-kicked a beaxiti-fiil goal from the 25-yard line! On two ether occasions, the Volunteers carried the bull within the 20-yard line of - Alabama, and Cameron tried for a goal ! oni the field, but was unable, to get cither one. Once the ball looked as though it went between the goal posts, but missed by a very narrow margin. The gains of the locals were made for the most part through line bucks and forward passes, as the Tennessee backs were able to get by the Alabama backs, Cm-file and Iove. very seldom, although Cameron and Thorn a son did turn the nick on a few occasions. When it came to bucking the line, thongh. Lindsay, Cameron, Thomason and May were i'there," Lindsay being particularly effective in this respect. Time aud again the Tennessee forwards opened up holes for the backs, and the latter plunged through for good gains, while the Tennessee forward repeatedly threw back Cup:a.n Ivong and Morton and Hates, halves, when they tried the line. Late ia the fonrth half, after the Tennessee Dlavers were getting tird. W. Marsh, Alabama's halfback, who had been kept out on account of injuries, was able to get through the line for good gains two or three times, but he was fresh and strong, while the Tennessee players were not. Only one change was made in the Tennessee team and that was late in the Unal session after "Little" Yowell, who I-layed a ripping good game at right end, had his .hand hurt, and SorrtUs went in hi place. The game was a fierce one. and frequently it was neces-y(,ry to take them out and several players almost "took the count." but all the Tennessee fe'Ujws were able to come back all right. Several changes were made by .Coach Graven, who used sixteen men. , Crimson Gained Little. Indicative of the comparative strength of the two teams, it may be noted that tne rial tors made first cown only once in the first quarter, and that after Ten' uessee had. been penalized. - five yards. In the second period, Alabama made first down once, aithoagh VandeGraaf rn forty yards for a touchdown fol lowing; fumble..
