Tennessee's quickly out to a 5-5 lead against the top-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks in Lindsey Nelson Stadium, and all-time Tennessee legend Peyton Manning started the festivities for the Vols today. The baseball program hinted all week that Manning might throw out the first pitch of today's game, and he did just that.
