Tennessee-Vanderbilt Series Prediction

Two powerhouse rivals meet in Nashville for a back-woods brawl. The Vols are among the best in multiple offensive statistical categories. Vandy, while not up to par with UT in hitting has its usual tough group of pitchers but Tennessee also has outstanding pitching. Look for Tennessee to get a rare series win at Hawkins Field.

Tennessee 2 wins, Vanderbilt 1 win
