After dropping two straight games, the Vols are looking to get back on track as they host Mississippi State. The Bulldogs are 9-7 with their best win coming against Missouri. I feel like it is worthy to mention that with Jaden Springer available for the full game Tennessee is undefeated at 10-0, while without Jaden Springer they are 0-3 with losses to Florida, Alabama, and Missouri. Coincidence? Maybe, or maybe not, as the last update on Springer is “Questionable". Also, I feel this is a valid question, where in the heck is Corey Walker? The former four star has yet to make his debut after reportedly suffering an injury, a boost from Walker off the bench would be welcomed. The match up I’ll have my eyes on though is John Fulkerson going up against Abdul Ado. Ado is currently averaging 2.1 block per game along with 6 points and 6 rebounds. To be honest, Fulkerson has left something to be desired this year after the way he performed last year, hopefully Fulky can find his groove and give the Vols a spark.
The game will tip off at 7 pm and will air on the SECNetwork.
