Tennessee announced via press release on Friday that three upcoming home games at Thompson-Boling Arena at Food City Center will be sold out.

The three sold-out games include rivalry games against Alabama (Jan. 20), Texas A&M (Feb. 24), and Kentucky (Mar. 9).

Tennessee also announced that limited tickets still remain for the Vols’ upcoming home games against Illinois (Dec. 9) and Auburn (Feb. 28).

The Vols sold out Thompson-Boling Arena five times last season and ended the season with the fifth-highest average attendance across the nation at 18,781. The capacity for TBA at FCC lands right at 21,678.

The 10th-ranked Vols are 2-0 at home this season with an opening win against Tennessee Tech and a win against Wofford eight days later. Tennessee is 4-3 overall this season after dropping games to then-No. 1 Kansas and then-No. 2 Purdue in the Maui Invitational followed by an eight-point loss to No. 17 North Carolina this past week in Chapel Hill. The Vols also have wins against Wisconsin and Syracuse.

“We’re good,” Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes said on Wednesday after the loss to North Carolina. “We’re a good team and it seems like we, I mean, you think about from the time we started going to Michigan State, Wisconsin. We’ve done a lot of traveling, but that’s not an excuse. I’ve always said you can’t win big games unless you get in them.”

Tennessee went 14-2 in Knoxville during the 2022-2023 regular season with marquee wins over Alabama, Texas, Auburn, and Arkansas. The Vols’ two home losses last season came against Kentucky and Missouri.

Tennessee’s home opponents this year include Alabama (sold out), Auburn (limited tickets), Florida, Kentucky (sold out), LSU, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Texas A&M (sold out), and Vanderbilt.
