Fifth-ranked UConn and Tennessee are both riding five-game win streaks into this long-standing rivalry game on Thursday. The Lady Vols will be looking for revenge after a 19-point loss to the Huskies on the road in February of 2022.
Meanwhile, on Saturday night, No. 10 Texas will look for back-to-back wins over No. 4 Tennessee after taking the game in Austin last year. ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives Tennessee the 83.4 percent chance to win the game over the Longhorns.
