The tailgating and Knoxville GameDay experience continues with the Vol Navy, which consists of hundreds of boats that are parked by the stadium on the Tennessee River. This is one of the most interesting parts about gameday, the only other place I know of that does this is Washington. I was there this past year, Washington's tailgating by boat doesn't even hold a candle to Tennessee's. Lastly, one of the main hot spots for tailgating is Circle Park. That is where we tailgated at. Also, many tailgate very close next to the basketball arena Thompson-Bowling Arena.

The traditions at Tennessee are a must see for every fan. First, make sure you see the Vol Walk. The Vol walk is when the players all enter Neyland Stadium. Fans are lined up on both sides as the players walk through. Second, you need to make sure you get there for the pregame so you can see the the marching band perform "Rocky Top" and the biggest tradition that you must see is when the players enter the field through the "T" formation. Neyland Stadium is rockin' at that point and that's when you realize just how loud 102,455 people can be.
