Tennessee Volunteers Basketball Road Games Schedule
When the 2014-2015 college basketball season gets underway,
every team has the highest of hopes and aspirations of making it all the way to the Final Four. Looking to follow up on an
incredible run that led to the Sweet Sixteen, the Tennessee Volunteers are as optimistic as ever heading into the new season
and the other teams in the SEC better watch out. In the safe confines of Thompson-Boling Arena, the Vols are supported by
an unparalleled fanbase that are always some of the loudest and most spirited in the country. When the Vols head out onto
the road, they face a tough test at every opposing arena where the rivalries in the SEC are deeply rooted. Vols fans need
to grab their orange and white gear and make the trip to support their team and try to even out the playing field that they
face when they head to the hostile courts around the conference.
There are many incredible matchups on the Vols schedule
this season, but there is one that stands out above the rest. When the Volunteers head to Auburn Arena to take on the Auburn
Tigers, the Vols will not only be facing a tough Tigers team, they will also face a familiar face. Over the offseason, the
Tigers hired former Vols head coach Bruce Pearl to be their head coach, which will no doubt stir up feelings among the Volunteer
faithful. Pearl led the Vols to six incredibly successful seasons on Rocky Top before being fired in 2011 after a recruiting
scandal. There will no doubt be an extra fire for both teams when they tip off in Auburn and Vols fans will want to be at
Auburn Arena to help support their team. Other road games that Vols fans won't want to miss is their annual trip to Rupp Arena
when the Vols take on the Kentucky Wildcats, who finished just shy of a National Championship last season. The young and exciting
Wildcats always make life difficult for visiting opponents and the Vols will need all the help they can get taking on this
talented team. Don't miss the chance to take a road trip to some of the greatest college towns in the country and cheer on
your Vols in the process by getting your tickets to exciting SEC games only at StubHub.
Tennessee Volunteer Basketball
The future looks bright for the University of Tennessee Volunteers basketball team and hopes are high heading
into the 2014-2015 season. The team made an incredible jump from the 2012-2013 season when the Vols had been ousted in the
first round of the NIT Tournament to a run to the Sweet Sixteen just one season later. The Vols were led by Senior guard Jordan
McRae and junior forward Jarnell Stokes, who tied a school record with 12 double-doubles last season. The Vols know that they
can improve on their sixth place finish in the SEC in 2013-2014 and they will definitely need their spirited fans to help
them along the way, at home and on the road.
Tennessee Volunteers Basketball Conference
Conference is known as the powerhouse football conference, where multiple teams finish in the Top 25 every season. The University
of Alabama Crimson Tide have won an incredible 15 National Championships, but their basketball team has never made it to the
Final Four. Though the University of Kentucky is not known as a team to watch during the college football season, but their
basketball counterparts have an impressive 8 National Championships. In SEC basketball, the rivalries run deep, especially
Kentucky vs. Tennessee and Kentucky vs Florida. Throughout the years, many SEC teams have excelled in college basketball,
making the conference more formidable in basketball than many believe.

attendance numbers in all of college basketball in recent years, the Vols are used to having their home games packed with

that is as hated among foes as it is beloved by Vols fans. Thompson-Boling Arena is one of the largest college basketball
arenas in the region, giving the Vols a formidable home court. When they are on the road, the Vols are in enemy territory,
with fierce rivalries throughout the SEC. To help cheer the Vols on when they are away from home, all Vols fans should head
