The 2013 Tennessee Volunteers football team represents the University of Tennessee in the 2013 season. The Volunteers play their home games at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee and competes in the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The team is coached by Butch Jones, who is in his inaugural season with UT. Jones was hired on December 7, 2012 to replace Derek Dooley who was fired on November 18, 2012 after an embarrassing loss to Vanderbilt.[2][3] On August 31, 2013, UT earned its 800th victory in program history against Austin Peay and became only the eighth school in the nation to reach that plateau after Michigan, Texas, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Alabama.

Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel, Georgia running back Keith Marshall, and Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley all had season-ending injuries in their teams' games against the Vols. South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw was also injured against Tennessee. [1]
