KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Auburn believes Tennessee is better than its record indicates.

The seventh-ranked Tigers want to make sure the Volunteers don't prove that this week.

Auburn (8-1, 4-1 SEC) has its final regular-season road test Saturday at Tennessee, which was outscored 76-13 by top-ranked Alabama and No. 9 Missouri in its last two games.

Tennessee's recent struggles could cause Auburn to look past this game before closing the regular season at home against Georgia and Alabama. The Tigers insist they'll resist that temptation.

Auburn realizes Tennessee (4-5, 1-4) has played well at home lately. In their last two home games, the Volunteers lost 34-31 in overtime to Georgia and beat No. 13 South Carolina 23-21.

Tennessee is facing a ranked opponent for the seventh time in its last eight games.
