The Tennessee coaching staff had an interesting incentive for Saturday's spring game.

The winner got a steak dinner while the losers had to eat pork and beans. Many spring games are scored untraditionally, and Tennessee's pitted the offense against the defense. The offense won, so it enjoyed the steak dinner while the defense got the pork and beans.

The aesthetic touch really rubs it in if you're on the losing team. While there was a carving station for the offense, the pork and beans were served in aluminum pans and looked, well, depressing. DL Jordan Williams does get credit for his optimism about the losing meal though.
