Duke vs Tennessee Preview

This is a titanic second-round matchup between a red-hot Duke team and the Tennessee Volunteers who are one of the top defensive teams in the nation. Duke toyed with a supposedly dangerous Oral Roberts team, while Tennessee took down Louisiana. This looks to be a tight physical game between two teams capable of winning it all.
