UT Chancellor gets first slice of orange at Vols' home opener

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) One of the hundreds of fans who had their first slice of orange Saturday at Neyland Stadium was UT Chancelor Beverley Davenport.

Davenport was selected to represent the big orange as chancellor last February. Davenport's big day at the home opener was full of appearances. She started the day at an alumni association meeting and then made her way to the tailgates.

"I've heard about these university of Tennessee tailgates and oh my goodness they're all over, the tents the students the parents the alumni they've covered this campus here on rocky top," said Davenport.

The next thing that was on her list was Neyland, just before game time.

"What an honor it is to be a part of this pride this history this tradition to see so many people in the state of Tennessee to come out to support us," said Davenport.
