Vanderbilt defeated Tennessee twice during the recently completed regular season. Vandy won 88-74 in Knoxville in a game which was much more lopsided than the score indicated. A little over a week ago the Commodores prevailed 86-69 at Memorial Gym. In the series, which started in the 1921-22 season, Vandy has never defeated the Vols three times in one season.
Vanderbilt trails in their all-time series with the Vols 116-74.
Thursday's game will start about 30 minutes after the Arkansas-Florida game ends. That game starts at noon CT so the Vandy-Tennessee game is expected to start at approximately 2:30 pm.
The winner at the Thursday's game will face LSU on Friday.
