Tennessee-Arkansas Prediction

Here’s a marquee series of the weekend for SEC Baseball. You might scoff at seeing Tennessee listed as one of the teams involved in this series but the Vols have rode very good pitching and fielding to the 7th spot in the NCAA’s RPI. The Hogs could be the best team in the nation though. They are very hard to beat at home in conference play. Only Ole Miss has managed to win a conference game in Fayetteville. The Vols should win at least one but Arkansas likely wins the series. Arkansas 2 wins, Tennessee 1 win.
