Butler Bulldogs (2015 - Pres)
8-1
KenPom 27

The Vols are in Indianapolis today to take on #18 Butler, a team they upset in Knoxville last year.  The Bulldogs come in 8-1, 27th in Ken Pomeroy's ratings and eighth in their offensive metric.  This should be another fun, up and down game with plenty of points from both sides.  The 4-3 Vols find themselves ranked 93rd in KenPom coming into today's game.

The Vols will be without Robert Hubbs today as he continues to recover from having his knee scoped.  This will also be the first look at Tennessee without Jabari McGhee off the bench, who transferred out of the program.

If you're following along live, we invite you to join us in the comments below with SB Nation's live, threaded comment system.  We'll see if Tennessee and Rick Barnes can rebound and compete with a strong opponent on the road after taking two weeks off for final exams.

You can find the action on Fox Sports 1.  Go Vols.
