The No. 1 ranked Tennessee Volunteers are just two wins away from locking up a spot in the SEC Title Game in Atlanta for the second straight year.

But before we dive into tonight's battle with in-state rival Vanderbilt, a brief recap of what we witnessed last night in College Station:

Tennessee 42, Texas A&M 21 - RB Jazz Owens has the best game of his career, scoring four touchdowns to lead the Volunteers to their sixth straight win.

Now, Coach Gus Duggerton and Tennessee (8-2, 5-1) shift their focus to a 3-7 Vanderbilt team that will be playing with literally nothing to lose.

The Commodores are already ineligible to receive a bowl invitation, and all they are going to want to do tonight is to come into Knoxville and potentially pull off what would be the biggest upset in the 2018 College Football season.

But Coach Duggs is staying confident ahead of tonight's 8:30 PM kickoff, saying he is going to "HOUSE" Vandy. Will there be a case of overconfidence? Or will the Volunteers perform a big butt-kicking on their fellow neighbors from Nashville?

See you in about four hours for Coach Duggs' final true road game of the year.
