Vols Enjoying Better Success on the Road Than at Home in SEC
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee is finding life on the road easier than the supposed comforts of home thus far in Southeastern Conference competition.
The Volunteers (12-6, 4-2 SEC) are undefeated in SEC road games but are 1-2 in home conference matchups. They’ll put that perfect SEC road mark to the test Tuesday at Arkansas (15-4, 4-2).
The last time Tennessee won its first four SEC road games in a season was in 1982, when the Vols tied for first place in the final conference standings.
Tennessee’s recent home struggles are unusual for a Donnie Tyndall-coached team.
Tyndall headed into SEC competition having gone 34-1 in regular-season home games since the start of the 2012-13 season. That included a 27-1 mark at Southern Mississippi and a 7-0 mark in Tennessee’s nonconference schedule this season.
