Best Answer

Robert Neyland, who coached the Tennessee Volunteers from 1926-1934, 1936-1940 and 1946-1952 posted 71 straight quarters without an opponent scoring. During this time the Volunteers defeated 17 straight opponents.

Robert Neyland had a 173-31-12 record at the University of Tennessee and won four National titles and 9 undefeated seasons.

Another unbelievable fact is that under Coach Neyland the Vols were not scored upon in 112 of the 173 wins Coach Robert Neyland had.

Neyland was also an innovator. He is credited with being the first coach to utilize sideline telephones and game film to study opponents. His teams also were some of the first to wear lightweight pads and tearaway jerseys. Wikipedia
