On paper, Tennessee is the exact opposite of Kentucky. The Volunteers play great defense. However, their offense has been a sputtering mess. Tennessee comes into the matchup with the Cats averaging 78.5 points per game, putting them at 70th in the country when it comes to total points scored. This game could favor Kentucky if it turns into a sprint.
