NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Missouri Timothy Tai-USA TODAY Sports

Several college basketball teams across the nation have teamed up to host exhibition match ups ahead of the 2017-18 to raise money for hurricane relief. On Thursday, Tennessee became one of those teams.

The Vols will travel to South Carolina to take on Clemson, where Rick Barnes served as head coach from 1994-1998. The game will tipoff at 12:30 pm on Sunday, November 5th at Clemson’s LittleJohn Coliseum.

Thanks to a waiver from the NCAA, many high profile programs were able to add on another opponent to their exhibition slate. In addition to playing Clemson, Tennessee will play host to Carson-Newman in Thompson-Boiling Arena on November 2nd.

While admission to the game is free, fans in attendance are encouraged to make a donation to the Salvation Army. Last week, Missouri faced off against Kansas in Kansas City in a renewal of a former Big 12 rivalry. According to reports, $1.75 million was raised during that contest.

Tennessee will officially begin their season on November 10th versus Presbyterian in Knoxville.
