Knoxville, TN – Tennessee faces border rival Kentucky on Tuesday night when the fourth-ranked Wildcats visit Thompson-Boling Arena for a 8:00pm CT tip. The 221st meeting between the two programs will air on ESPN.
Kentucky (17-2, 7-0 SEC) represents the sixth ranked opponent that the Vols (10-9, 3-4 SEC) have faced this season. On Tuesday, Tennessee will be seeking its first win over a ranked opponent in 2016-17 while also looking to achieve its 69th win over Kentucky in program history. Of UT’s 68 wins — which are the most against the Wildcats of any collegiate team — 22 have come against a ranked UK squad.
Clarksville, TN – In 1780 a group of 300 daring pioneers decided to journey upon the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River in flatboats and canoes.
The destination for some of them would be present day Montgomery County, upon the Red River at the mouth of Passenger Creek. Yet, in order to arrive at their destination they had to guide their boats through a frontier full of Native Americans determined to attack them.
Why would they attempt such an endeavor which seemed to almost promise violence, deprivation, and other hardships?

Knoxville, TN – Robert Hubbs III scored 19 points to lead four Vols in double-figures as Tennessee took a 91-74 win over Mississippi State on Saturday at Thompson-Boling Arena.
Tennessee (10-9, 3-4 SEC) limited its mistakes, committing just seven turnovers against the Bulldogs (12-6, 3-3 SEC), and dominated the glass with a season-high 49 rebounds to Mississippi State’s 35. UT’s 14-rebound advantage was also its largest of the season. After an even first half, the Vols used a pair of second-half runs to take control of the game.
UT’s 91 points in the win marked its most in SEC play this season and the most MSU has surrendered this year.
Tampa, FL – Gas prices have fallen for eight consecutive days, reaching today’s national average price of $2.34 per gallon. The price of retail gasoline has retreated since last week with today’s average three cents less per gallon than one week ago, but ten cents more than one month ago and 43 cents more per gallon year-over-year.
The slight decrease in retail prices can be attributed to less demand and adequate supply, but this downward dip may only be temporary as the market awaits OPEC’s December monthly output report which is due out later this week.
