Tennessee had a disappointing opening weekend of the season, going 1-2 at the Desert Invitational with tight losses to Arizona and Grand Canyon and a blowout victory over UC-San Diego.
The Vols’ offense stalled in the first two games before finding their stride with a four-run seventh inning that broke the UC-San Diego game open.
Entering the season No. 2 according to nearly every ranking, Tennessee dropped in every poll though how far varied from just one spot to nine spots.
Let’s take a look at where Tennessee stands in various rankings this week.
