The Mississippi St. Bulldogs are coming off a huge win down in Gainesville, Florida, after defeating the Florida Gators, 78-71. The Bulldogs were down 16 at one point during the game, but came out hot in the second half to complete the comeback victory.

The Bulldogs take on the Tennessee Volunteers this Saturday at 1:00 pm CT. The Volunteers were defeated Tuesday by the Texas A&M Aggies by a score of 63-58. Tennessee’s record is 12-8 heading into Saturday’s game at the Humphrey Coliseum.

Tennessee’s guard, Yves Pons, is a player to keep your eye own during Saturday’s game. He dropped 24 points against the #3 Kansas Jayhawks.
