    Can The Titans (-3.5) Take Down Joe Burrow And The Bengals?

    LSU star guard Xavier Pinson is out and star forward Darius Days is available for today’s game against Tennessee, Tigers’ coach Will Wade revealed Friday and Saturday.

    At Wade’s Friday press conference, the head coach said Pinson would be out for the game while Days was questionable.

    However, Wade told CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein that the star forward would be available for the top 25 matchup.

    Pinson got injured in the second half of LSU’s win over Tennessee two weeks ago, but has missed the subsequent three games.

    Days injured his ankle in the first half of LSU’s loss at Alabama Wednesday and didn’t return.

    The 6-foot-7 forward is second on the Tigers in scoring (13.5 PPG) while Pinson (10.9 PPG) is third in scoring.

    Tennessee forward Josiah Jordan James is questionable after taking an elbow above his eye in Tuesday’s win at Vanderbilt.

    The Vols are 5.5-point home favorites over No. 13 LSU. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. ET and ESPN is broadcasting the game.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
