Tennessee is looking to avenge its 85-69 loss at Texas A&M earlier this month. The 16-point loss marks Tennessee’s most lopsided loss of the season to date. The Aggies hit an inordinate amount of three-pointers in the first matchup and dominated the glass against Tennessee.

Both teams have gone in opposite directions since the first meeting just two short weeks ago. The Aggies have lost three straight games since defeating Tennessee including losses against struggling Vanderbilt and Arkansas teams.

Rick Barnes’ ninth Tennessee team beat the same Arkansas and Vanderbilt teams by a combined 64 points since the last meeting while also surviving an upset scare against Missouri earlier this week.

Tennessee enters the conference matchup 10-3 in conference play and just a game back of Alabama for first place in the SEC Championship race.

Tipoff between the Vols and Aggies is at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night. Tom Hart and Jimmy Dykes are on the call for ESPN.
