  • Tennessee has now won 11-straight matches, six of which have come on the road. Entering Wednesday, UT is also perfect 12-0 at home.

  • Tennessee has now had six different players accumulate 12 league honors, which is the most in the conference this year and five more than any other university.


  • For the third time in the last four years, UK takes on the Lady Vols in the final match of the season with a chance for a piece of the SEC title.
  • The Tennessee-Kentucky match-up is the longest running rivalry in Tennessee's history, as the teams have faced off at least once every year since at 1978.

No other conference school has had multiple players receive SEC weekly awards in the same week this year.
