Connections run deep as No. 4 Tennessee hosts No. 10 Texas

It will be a case of "out of the frying pan and into the fire" when No. 4 Tennessee hosts No. 10 Texas on Saturday in a much-anticipated Big 12/SEC Challenge game in Knoxville.

The teams play in two of the toughest leagues in the nation, but the battle Saturday is no reprieve. Instead, it feels like a potential orange-and-white-hued matchup in the Sweet 16 between teams connected by many common bonds.

The two programs played last season for the first time since current Tennessee coach Rick Barnes was fired in 2015 after coaching the Longhorns for 17 seasons. He was hired by Volunteers two days after his firing and has been in Knoxville for eight years.
