"She's just great," said Brenda Wofford, a Titans fan who wore an orange shirt to the game. "I just love her so much and so i wanted to wear this shirt for her today."
Summitt stepped down from coaching after nearly four decades at the helm of the Lady Vols program after she was diagnosed with early onset dementia.
Her appearance at Sunday's game was cheered by fans across the state but for some like Jason Riley, it hit even closer to home.
"It's sentimental," Riley said. "My father-in-law, he had it and it's just awesome to see her raising the flag."
While LP Field had a shade of orange before the game started, after kickoff, it was all "Code Blue."
There were high points and some low points, but in the end the Titans fell well short with a 34-13 loss to last year's AFC champions.
Of course, true Titans fans weren't discouraged and had plenty to be excited about, despite the loss.
"Kendall Wright is a force to be reckoned with," Brian Brewer said. "Jake Locker, he's got some growing pains but I feel really good about him."
And as they say, having football on Sunday and losing is better than not having football at all.
"We had tons of fun," said Austin Burch, who went to the game with his parents and younger sister Abigail who said, "even though they lost we still had fun."
Of course they hope to have even more fun next time with a Titans win.

Pipeline work can continue at state natural area
May 24, 2013 11:16 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee environmental officials have given Piedmont Natural Gas permission to resume drilling on a Nashville pipeline project.
Work was halted on May 11 when a mixture of bentonite clay and water spilled from a drill into Otter Creek at the Radnor Lake State Natural Area.
The mud was later scraped out of the creek using buckets and hand tools.
Meredith Benton, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/199LA54 ) that Piedmont agreed to 11 new terms and conditions to prevent a recurrence of the spill.
Those include creating a pit to capture any spilled slurry and daily water quality monitoring.
Benton said the department has not decided whether to issue fines or citations.
