2017 Match Notes: Mississippi and Georgia

Tennessee heads home for their final three matches of the regular season, with Mississippi and Georgia on deck this weekend.

  • MATCH NOTES
  • Tennessee is 42-10 vs Mississippi all-time. UT is 6-4 in the last ten meetings and 8-2 in the last ten meetings in Knoxville. This is the only match between the schools this season.

    Tennessee is 45-27 all-time vs Georgia. UT is 7-3 in the last ten meetings and 9-1 in the last ten meetings in Knoxville. In their match earlier this season the Vols won 15-5 in the fifth set, led by a huge match off the bench from Stephanie Buss — she had 15 kills this season coming into that match, then put down 16 vs the Bulldogs.

    UT needs to win their last three matches to ensure a regular season winning record. Two of the top five teams in the conference are part of that schedule — and the Vols have already defeated them both earlier this year.

    In the past ten seasons, Tennessee and Mississippi have only gone to five sets twice, both UT wins in 2011 (the year the team won the SEC with a 19-1 record).

    Of the 31 matches played between Tennessee and Georgia during the rally scoring era, only 2 were decided in four sets.

    The Bulldogs have earned 11 weekly SEC awards this season, topping their previous school record of 4. The Rebels have picked up 1 conference award this year. So far, the Vols have won none. If that holds it would be just the second season the team was locked out since 1998.

    Brooke Schumacher is 1 dig away from reaching the school single-season top ten digs list. She’s 87 digs shy of the career top ten digs list.
