The Vols will face off against Cincinnati on December 12th at Thompson Boling Arena, but reports are that the Vols are searching to find a tune up game before then, here are a few rumors as to whom that could be. Todd Stewart, the Western Kentucky University (WKU) AD has stated that the Hilltoppers have contacted the Vols to schedule a game. The Hilltoppers are coached by Rick Stansbury and are led by potential lottery pick Charles Bassey and senior guard Taveion Hollingsworth. Tyler Pellom, who covers Austin Peay for the GovsReport, has also reported that the Vols have also been in contact with the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State to schedule a game. Rob Lewis of Volquest had said he heard it is likely the Vols will face the Skyhawks of UT-martin on Wednesday (presumably the 9th of December), but the latest says that the Vols should play UT-Martin on Tuesday and that MTSU would like to play a game later in the month. It’s great to finally hear some positive news right? Go Vols!
