The Tennessee Volunteers will close out the 2019-20 regular season today at home against the Auburn Tigers. Bruce Pearl will make another return trip to Knoxville, looking to continue his hot streak against his former program.
Tennessee led Auburn for much of the game a couple of weeks ago on the road, only to blow it in the second half. Having that win in their pocket would have gone a long way on Selection Sunday, but now the Volunteers have a chance to forget about that day. After a win on the road against Kentucky, plus a win at home against Florida, Tennessee has returned to the NCAA Tournament bubble.
A win against Auburn could take them from the wrong side of the bubble to the right side. At the very least, it would give them a fighting chance to make something happen next week in the SEC Tournament.
