When UT welcomed UK to town in 1924

On Thanksgiving Day, 1924, the Wildcats played on Shields-Watkins Field against the Volunteers in Knoxville. The hometown boys were defeated 27-6.

From the Abe Thompson scrapbook (available at the Kentucky Digital Library), come these first two undated photos.  I'm assuming that they are from 1924, mostly based on the official in image 63 (white shirt).  You can see a similar person in the UT Yearbook photo at the end.

The University of Tennessee Libraries host the UT yearbooks.

The Volunteer - 1925

The University of Tennessee went 3-5 that season (1924), beating Emory & Henry, Maryville, and Carson-Newman.
