Vols volunteered to play at Pitt

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl is about to learn whether it was wise to allow his Volunteers to become, well, volunteers.

No. 11 Tennessee (6-0) meets No. 3 Pittsburgh (10-0) on Saturday in an SEC-Big East Invitational matchup of early season unbeatens. The game will be at the Consol Energy Center, not Pitt's Petersen Events Center, but it will be anything but a neutral site game -- not with 16,000 Pitt partisans attending.

For Pitt, it's a rare game in its home city against a highly ranked team before Big East Conference play begins. For Tennessee, it's a challenging trip to play an opponent most ranked teams would prefer not to meet until the NCAA tournament.
