The Vols go Thursday-Friday-Saturday this weekend in Starkville, beginning with a 7:30 PM ET start tonight that will be televised on ESPNU/3. Tennessee took a game from then-#4 Florida last weekend and beat ETSU midweek, putting UT 45th in this week's baseball RPI; Mississippi State is 47th.

The goal continues to be Hoover and the SEC Baseball Tournament, which takes the Top 10 teams in the league. Here are the SEC standings (with coaches' poll ranking) coming into tonight's action:

Eastern Division
