The Lady Vols' match-up with Texas A&M is the first of four straight UT contests vs. teams ranked in the AP Top 20. The Lady Vols and Aggies will be meeting for the 11th time overall and third time in College Station during the series.

The Lady Vols will be aiming to go 16-0 for only the fourth occasion in school history and for the first time during the Holly Warlick era. The last time Tennessee began a season 16-0, the Lady Vols extended the streak to 18 games before finally falling during the 2005-06 season en route to a 31-5 overall record and an Elite Eight finish.

UT has opened SEC play 3-0 for the first time since 2014-15 and for the third time during the Holly Warlick era (also in 2012-13). The Lady Vols used a late 13-4 run in the fourth quarter to stave off upset-minded Vanderbilt, 86-73, on Sunday in Knoxville and remain unbeaten.

Texas A&M opened SEC play with a narrow loss at South Carolina (61-59), but bounced back to win its next two games, 74-70 over Kentucky and 83-82 over Auburn. The Lady Vols also have beaten Kentucky (63-49) and Auburn (70-59) early in SEC play.

The teams also had a common foe in non-conference play, with UT defeating Central Arkansas, 77-34, and A&M topping the Sugar Bears, 72-61. The Aggies losses have come to #8/9 Oregon (twice), #15/15 West Virginia and #9/8 South Carolina.
