NASHVILLE, TN - Because of the new alignment in the SEC, the Tennessee Volunteers no longer play Kentucky twice, instead the conference feels Vanderbilt is more of their rivals.

The first of 2 games will take place on Wednesday night in the "music city," so that means Vols head coach Cuonzo Martin will be wearing the orange jacket. It's a tradition started by Ray Mears, brought back by Bruce Pearl and now continued by Martin, but not everyone in the state is that enamored with the orange blazer or the rivalry.

The Volunteers have beaten the Commodores 5 out of the last 6 times they've played.
