Ole Miss tumbled all the way to 10th, while Arkansas moved into the No. 2 spot behind the Volunteers. Vanderbilt fell to 9th after taking a series loss to South Carolina. The Commodores will host Tennessee this weekend in Nashville.
Tennessee, now a ridiculous 23-1 on the season, left little doubt in Oxford this weekend. A 12-1 win got things rolling on Friday night, and a 10-3 win sealed the series win on Saturday. The Volunteers fought hard for a 4-3 victory on Sunday afternoon to complete the sweep.
Lane Kiffin throwing out the first pitch with a golf ball on Friday night only made things that much sweeter.
Tennessee will host Western Carolina on Wednesday night, before loading up for Nashville for a massive weekend series.
