The No. 11 seeds Tennessee Vols and Iowa Hawkeyes will face off in a NCAA Tournament play-in game Wednesday at 9:10pm ET. The winner will play No. 6 seed UMass on Friday.
A play-in game is probably not what the Vols were looking for when the bracket was announced this evening, but there is a silver lining to this. Both Iowa and UMass are very winnable games for the Vols.
The bad part is the Vols are in a loaded Midwest bracket that includes No. 1 Wichita State, No. 2 Michigan, No. 3 Duke and a ridiculously good No. 4 Louisville.
