It took six games, seven turnovers and a rash of injuries, but Tennessee's good fortune finally ran out in a 45-38 double overtime loss to Texas A&M.
Yet, somehow, the Vols still had a chance to win, because Tennessee is all about that charmed life.
This was an action-packed game from the start, beginning with Christian Kirk's 13-yard touchdown off of Tennessee's first lost fumble.
On Tennessee's ensuing drive, running back Alvin Kamara took a screen out of the backfield for big yardage. However, Aggies safety Armani Watts chased down Kamara and stripped the ball right out of Kamara's hands, leading to the Vols' second lost fumble of the day.
By this point, Texas A&M was on a roll. Fast starts have been a staple of Kevin Sumlin's teams, just not this year. That changed on Saturday when quarterback Trevor Knight's first rushing touchdown put the Aggies up 21-7.
And while Knight wasn't as prolific throwing the ball, perhaps the prettiest highlight of the day came in the third quarter when he hit Josh Reynolds for a gorgeous 32-yard reception that Reynolds reeled in with one hand.
However, Tennessee slowly began creeping its way back. Up just seven points with about five minutes left in the fourth, Knight's 62-yard keeper put the Aggies back up by two touchdowns.
Texas A&M looked like it had the game in hand when running back Trayveon Williams took a handoff 71 yards on what looked to be a touchdown ... until Malik Foreman ran up from behind to force a fumble, knocking the ball into the end zone for a touchback.
Six plays later, Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs found Kamara for a tying touchdown, sending the game into overtime. Tennessee had made yet another comeback.
However, in the second overtime, Knight ran it in for a touchdown to give Texas A&M the lead. On the ensuing possession, Dobbs was picked off for the second time by Watts, sealing the A&M win and giving the Vols their first loss of the season.
