The Shockers lost to the Volunteers in Knoxville last season but finished the year with a flurry, advancing all the way to the Final Four. A Tennessee win in December would even the all-time series between the programs at 2-2, dating to 1990.
This marks the fourth straight season that Wichita State has hosted a game at INTRUST Bank Arena (capacity 15,000), defeating Tulsa, UAB and Southern Miss at that venue the last three years, respectively.
The facility hosts several major concerts and events annually while also serving as home to the Wichita Thunder of the Central Hockey League.
WSU typically plays its home games at its on-campus facility, Charles Koch Arena (capacity 10,512).
