Tennessee won its second straight SEC title, this time in a defensive struggle. Mississippi State was held to 149 total yards and scored 2 TD's, one on defense and one on a punt return. The unconventional scoring was not enough, as Tennessee relied on TD's by Travis Stephens, Peerless Price and Cedrick Wilson to seal the conference title.
