In all, the Knights already have faced six teams in the top 75 of the Campbell's ITA Rankings.

The loss dropped UCF to 3-7 on the year, while the Lady Vols jumped to 9-3.

Tennessee opened up with a 1-0 lead by winning two of the three doubles matches. UCF did pick up a victory at the No. 3 position where Taylor Dubins and Andrea Yacaman topped Jesse Grace and Caitlyn Williams, 8-3.
