2020 Match Notes: vs LSU

The Lady Vols take on LSU here in Knoxville in what will probably be the last matches of the season.

Still no official word announced on postponed matches being rescheduled. UT put out a Tweet that said “Last chance to catch the Lady Vols at home this season” and a promotional email with the subject line “Final spring volleyball matches”. My guess is since the matches to be made up probably won’t effect the NCAA Tournament bids, they won’t be played.

Tennessee is 25-38 all-time vs LSU. UT is 4-6 in the last ten meetings and 4-6 in the last ten meetings at home.

Over a 13 day period, UT will have played 6 matches on six different days in 3 different states after their games this week.

After a 5-11 start, the Tigers have gone on a 4 match winning streak.

LSU’s Taylor Bannister has been named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for the last two weeks in a row.

If the Lady Vols win both matches this week AND Texas A&M loses one of their two matches to Florida AND Missouri loses both matches to Mississippi State, Tennessee would finish 4th place in the SEC behind Kentucky, Florida, and Arkansas (assuming no other makeup games were played).

Tickets for the match can be purchased online here. Important match information relating to COVID precautions should be read in advance of attending here. There are some promotions this week, including trivia questions which will require an app download, music bingo, fan appreciation day, and concession discounts. More info can be found here.
