The Orange Jacket is ready for its third night out on town for the season. Last year, Joel wrote a defining piece on Pearl before that Vandy game - an analogy that still rings true. This year's editions of both teams are improved over last year's; UT has their first view as King of the Mountain, but Vanderbilt is no slouch, and at home is as tough as anybody in the country.

Be sure to leave your game comments here as UT embarks upon its first-ever defense of a #1 ranking in men's basketball.
