† – Conference champion

The 1929 Tennessee Volunteers football team (variously "Tennessee", "UT" or the "Vols") represented the University of Tennessee in the 1929 college football season. Playing as a member of the Southern Conference (SoCon), the team was led by head coach Robert Neyland, in his fourth year, and played their home games at Shields-Watkins Field in Knoxville, Tennessee. The 1928 Vols won nine, lost zero and tied one game (9–0–1 overall, 6–0–1 in the SoCon). In a virtual repeat of the previous year, a tie with Kentucky spoiled Tennessee's perfect season. Playing eight home games, the Volunteers outscored their opponents 330 to 13 and posted eight shutouts.
