The Tennessee-Memphis basketball rivalry is officially back on.
Tennessee coach Rick Barnes, during a press conference on Monday recapping his team's season, confirmed that his Vols are in a three-year contract with the Tigers, starting next season at Memphis.
Memphis will play at Tennessee the following season and the two teams will meet in Nashville for a neutral-site game in the third year of the contract. Other Tennessee teams could play in Nashville alongside the Vols.
"It's something we had been working on with Tubby Smith since we had gotten here," Barnes said. "Don't hold me to it, but I think the way the contract sets up, we go there first, then they come here, then we have a meeting in Nashville."
