Gonzaga and Tennessee to hold preseason game in Texas


The Gonzaga Bulldogs will take on the Tennessee Volunteers in a preseason scrimmage in Frisco, Texas, on Oct. 28, according to Mike Wilson of the Knoxville News Sentinel. The game is reportedly open to the public.

The NCAA permits programs to schedule up to two preseason games either in the form of closed-door scrimmages or exhibition bouts, like the matchup with the Vols. In previous years, the Zags have held scrimmages against Michigan State like in 2019 when they upended the presumptive No. 1 Spartans in Denver. According to Rocky Top Insider, the Vols and MSU will hold a similar scrimmage before the 2022-23 season begins.
