No. 20 Tennessee Basketball Welcomes Alabama State to Rocky Top for mid-week tilt

For the first time in 2019-20, the Tennessee Volunteers (3-0) have cracked the AP Top 25. But the Volunteers, ranked 20th in the nation, can’t rest on their laurels as an upset-minded Alabama State (0-3) will enter Thompson-Boling Arena with nothing to lose.

The Hornets, led by head coach Lewis Jackson, might be winless on the season thus far, but they would love nothing more than to go on the road and knock off a top-25 team.

ASU comes into tonight’s 6pm CT game having scored an average of 56.7 points per game, compared to Tennessee’s 78.3 points per game.

On the defensive side the Hornets are yielding an average of 79.3 points per game while the Volunteers are giving up 62.7 points per game.

Can Tennessee continue their undefeated streak, or will Alabama State earn their first win of the season?

I Feel An Upset Coming to The Plains

We all know what happened exactly six years ago Saturday, “The Prayer in Jordan-Hare.” It has been asked all week ‘Does Auburn have what it takes to knock off Georgia?’

They say history repeats itself, in fact, every six years, the calendar repeats itself and in a way the Tigers are in the same situation they were in six years ago, just in a different fashion and they are in the situation to upset Georgia and shut Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs out of the playoffs.

We all know that Auburn is always up when it comes to playing Georgia and Alabama, it’s two biggest, most bitter rivals in the country.

The question is, does Auburn have enough depth and strength to knock off both Georgia and Alabama?

If that does happen, where will the playoff committee turn? Would they put Auburn in the playoffs?

I think the Tigers control their own destiny at this point, despite having losses to Florida and #1 LSU, Auburn has a chance to pull off yet another miracle.

As of right now, Georgia is a 2.5-point favorite on The Plains, but I’m taking the Tigers in this one. I think they have what it takes to add another chapter to the book of big wins in big games that it owns.

Could we see yet another miracle exactly six years apart?
