4. Tennessee 48, Northwestern 28 (Jan. 1, 1997)

The Vols closed out the 1996 season 10-2 with a romp past a Darnell Autry-led Northwestern team. Northwestern was a co-Big Ten champ and a year removed from a Rose Bowl appearance, but Manning passed for 408 yards and four touchdowns in the 1997 Florida Citrus Bowl.

3. Tennessee 20, Ohio State 14 (Jan. 1, 1996)

Both teams came in ranked, tied for fourth in the polls. "You can't spell citrus (bowl) without UT," then Florida coach Steve Spurrier said. After finishing the regular season 10-1, Tennessee celebrated the New Year with a 20-14 win over Ohio State and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George.
