Tennessee Volunteers kicker Chase McGrath (USC Trojans, Mater Dei) kicking game-winning field goal over the Alabama Crimson Tide winning 52-49.

Named #secfootball Special Teams Player of the Week, McGrath nailed the 40 yarder under incredible pressure from the Tide, snapping a 15 game losing streak.

Jailin Hyatt and Hendon Hooker had full confidence in their kicker as time expired in Neyland Stadium Fans, teams, and media reacted with awe as Josh Heupel led his team over Nick Saban.


Since 2021, the Vols have trained on the Pro-Posts, developing consistency.

Major takeaways:

  1. McGrath’s “bad” ball from 40 yards out was good enough to knock off #2 Alabama.
  2. One kick & clear: McGrath bounced back from a missed PAT earlier in the game.
  3. Trust in the operation: he trusts his snapper, holder, and his own swing.
