Vols could face 7 ranked foes in 8-game stretch

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee could be in the midst of the type of gauntlet no team has faced in two decades.
The Volunteers (4-3, 1-2 SEC) visit top-ranked Alabama (7-0, 4-0) on Saturday in their third straight game against a Top 25 team. They follow that up by visiting No. 5 Missouri (7-0, 3-0) and hosting No. 11 Auburn (6-1, 3-1) the next two weeks.
If Missouri and Auburn remain in the Top 25 when they face Tennessee, the Vols would face seven ranked opponents in an eight-game stretch.
According to STATS LLC, the last team to play seven ranked teams in the span of eight games was UCLA from November 2007 to September 2008. Nobody has faced seven ranked opponents in an eight-game stretch within a single season since Pittsburgh in 1993.
