#16 Tennessee Vols vs. Georgia Bulldogs
Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 | 5:00pm CT
Knoxville, TN – With a chance to at least claim a share of the SEC Championship, 16th-ranked Tennessee wraps up the regular season against Georgia in Thompson-Boling Arena on Saturday. The game tips at 5:00pm CT and will be televised live on SEC Network and streamed online via WatchESPN.
The Volunteers (22-7, 12-5 SEC) can claim a share of the regular-season championship with a win, but if Auburn loses to South Carolina and UT wins, Tennessee would pass the Tigers for the top spot in the SEC and would be the outright champion after being picked to finish 13th in the preseason. The Vols sealed their top-2 finish on Tuesday with a dominating win at Mississippi State behind 24 points from Admiral Schofield. The junior forward is averaging 21.7 ppg and 7.3 rpg during UT’s three-game winning streak.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to store water at Barkley Reservoir, reduce Ohio River and Mississippi River flood crests
Written by Bill Peoples
Nashville, TN – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announced today that it is continuing its flood control operation by using flood control storage in Lake Barkley to help mitigate the ongoing flood event on the Ohio River. This may cause minor high water impacts to communities along the Cumberland River in Lyon and Trigg Counties in Kentucky, and Stewart and Montgomery Counties in Tennessee.
Releases from Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River in Kuttawa, KY, are being reduced today as the Ohio River flood crest passes downstream. This reduction in discharge contributes to lowering the crest on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, thereby reducing flood risk at cities such as Paducah, KY, Cairo, IL, Memphis, TN, Vicksburg MS, and New Orleans, LA.
