The Vols are one game away from being bowl eligible, but some fans are looking for a Vols victory to celebrate a wedding. 

A wedding, that is, after the game at their tailgate on the rooftop of the Civic Coliseum and Auditorium parking structure. 

John and Leigh Urban have planned a wedding for the last home game, they say, because they were already going to be surrounded by friends. 

“You don’t always get to see everyone after the season… so when we get up here it’s like a family,” said Urban. 

A family they met from tailgating next door to each other for years. The officiate: their friend. 

“For some of us, we won’t see each other until next September but it’s like we’ve never been apart. It’s just such great friendships,” said Urban. 

The wedding is planned for after the game on Saturday. Win or lose, the couple says it’s set to be a special day.
