After back to back statement sweeps on the road, Tennessee returns home for a weekend series against Missouri. The Volunteers convincingly took three games each from Ole Miss and Vanderbilt, taking a firm grasp on the No. 1 ranking in the land.
Tennessee now sits at 28-1 overall and 9-0 in SEC play. A win tonight would make Tennessee just the second team ever to begin 10-0 in conference play since the SEC expanded back in 1992.
Missouri is 18-8 overall and 3-6 in conference play. Their conference slate began with three losses to Vanderbilt, a 1-2 weekend against Arkansas and finally a 2-1 series win over South Carolina last weekend. They now face a red hot Tennessee team that hasn’t lost a game since March 4th.
