Tennessee highlights non-conference men's basketball schedule with 7 home games
Tennessee is trying to build on its undefeated home schedule from last season, and the Vols now have the opponents in mind. Rick Barnes’ program released its non-conference schedule on Tuesday, including 7 home games.
Barnes will begin his eighth season on Rocky Top against Tennessee Tech on Monday, Nov. 7. The Vols then meet Colorado to cap off their three-game series in downtown Nashville at Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 13. Florida Gulf Coast is next on the schedule on Nov. 16 before the Vols travel to the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Tennessee will play 3 games during Thanksgiving week in Paradise Island, Bahamas as it starts with Butler on Nov. 23. The next day, the Vols will face either BYU or Southern Cal, before playing a third and final game on Nov. 25.
Tennessee returns home for 3 straight games against McNeese State on Nov. 30, Alcorn State on Dec. 4 and Eastern Kentucky on Dec. 7.
The Vols then have back-to-back contests away from home, beginning with a neutral site meeting with Maryland on Dec. 11 in Brooklyn, N.Y. for the Hall of Fame Invitational in the Barclays Center.
Tennessee’s final regular-season non-conference road trip will be Dec. 17 at Arizona—the return trip of the Vols and Wildcats’ home-and-home series after Arizona visited Thompson-Boling Arena last season.
Before SEC play begins in late December, the Vols will play Austin Peay on Dec. 21.
Tennessee’s final regular season non-conference game comes exactly one month later on Jan. 28, when Texas comes to Knoxville for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.
Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
