Bobby Dodd was the
centerpiece of the "Hack and Mack" backfield that featured Buddy
Hackman and Gene McEver, expanding the quarterback role like never before.
It was his

in a 13-0 win against then-Southern power Vanderbilt. Dodd finished
with 14 punts for a 42-yard
average, had nine carries for 39 yards, was 7-of-12 passing for 159
yards and two touchdowns and intercepted two passes. On the afternoon,
gained 212 all-purpose yards, collecting all but 14 of Tennessee's
team total of 226. The Vols finished 9-1, and Dodd's dominance on
earned him 1930 All-America honors.
Dodd was inducted
into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1959 as a player. He was
head coach at Georgia Tech from 1947-66, compiling a record of 165-64-6
