Guaranteed to be an upset: Bruce Pearl returns to the sideline (if only temporarily) Saturday to coach Tennessee in a nonleague game against No. 8 Connecticut (CBS/CBSSports.com at 2 p.m. ET), and this is exactly the type of game Pearl wins. So what the heck, I'll take UT in an upset over Kemba Walker's Huskies. (And, yes, I'm well aware that even if the Vols win this game they'll likely figure out a way to lose at home to LSU next week. Such is life on the UT rollercoaster. You can't make sense of it. You just have to enjoy the ride.)
