Vols seek historic 16th straight win Saturday

The top ranked Vols plat Texas A&M on Saturday in College Station, Texas. If Tennessee can beat the Aggies they will have won 16 games in a row, a new program record.

Rick Barnes was asked about the challenges of playing Texas A&M on the road, "Billy Kennedy is one of the best coaches there is around, and he has had some tough luck. When you lose a guy you are counting on, Admon Guilder, I have a lot of respect for that guy. He is one of their leaders, and now it means guys have to take other roles. What stands out to me is that they beat a team last week that was playing as good as anybody, in Kansas State. They handled them pretty easy and hung around with LSU. We know they are a team that can do some ball screening and mix defenses. They have some other things they do, playing off the elbow with their offense. The respect we have to have against every opponent, they are going to fight, and battle and we have to be ready for that challenge."
