Tennessee baseball returns to the field on Friday afternoon for its first three-game series of the season as they host UAlbany at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville.

After posting a 2-1 record against three Big 12 foes in the Shriners Children’s College Classic last weekend, Tennessee returned home earlier this week where they knocked off UNC-Asheville and ETSU in midweek bouts.

UAlbany has yet to play a game this season as they travel to Knoxville to face the Vols in a three-game series.

Here’s how to watch the three games, projected pitching matchups, potential position starters and more for the weekend series.
