SWXRightNow.com -- It looks like next year's Battle In Seattle opponent is set for Gonzaga and it will be Tennessee coming to KeyArena to join the Zags.

The Volunteers' new head coach Rick Barnes leaked the news during the Vols' Big Orange Caravan Tour stop at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. 

"Mark Few, who I have great respect for, and we've known each other. We've scrimmaged them every year that I was at Texas, once we were able to start scrimmaging," Barnes said on the stop. "We've either met in Denver or Arizona. We've met somewhere and scrimmaged, and now that we're further apart, we're going to play. He has a tournament up there in Seattle — Battle in Seattle. I think it's around [December] 20th. They'll return it back to Nashville.”

Neither Gonzaga or Few have confirmed Tennessee will be the next run in opponents to duke it out in Seattle in December 2015, or the above-mentioned return trip to Nashville to play in a neutral site game the next year.
