KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - After a long-awaited win against the Crimson Tide, more than 100,000 Vols fans stormed the field to celebrate, taking down goalposts with fireworks exploding in the background.

No. 6 Tennessee's 52-49 win against No. 3 Alabama comes after a 15-year losing streak against the university, according to Local 3 News.

Video captured by the news outlet shows the massive crowd of fans taking in the Vols' first win against Alabama since 2006. Fans also made their mark by leaving signatures on the remains of the goalposts.

Tennessee has made an online fundraiser to replace the goalposts in Neyland Stadium. As of Sunday afternoon, they have raised more than $43,000. 

Redshirt senior Chase McGrath kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired to score the historic win.
