KNOXVILLE, TN (RNN) - The Tennessee Volunteers rallied back in the final minutes to defeat the Arkansas Razorbacks 81-74 Wednesday night.

The Arkansas Razorbacks (12-6, 1-4 SEC) road woes continue - they are 2-21 in SEC road play since head coach Mike Anderson took over three years ago. It's a far cry from their home record in the same time span: 45-6.

The back-and-forth game began with the Razorbacks leading 29-26 midway through the first half, but the Volunteers (12-6, 3-2 SEC) rallied back to take the lead, entering halftime 39-37. The second half saw Arkansas carry the lead for nearly eight minutes before Tennessee stormed back in the final five minutes, taking over with a Jordan McRae 3-pointer and two made free throws.

Tennessee's McRae had a stellar night, scoring 34 points and going nine of 18 from the floor and 12 of 14 from the free throw line. The Volunteers shot 78.9 percent from the free throw line while only making 40.7 percent from the floor and 36.8 percent from downtown.

Arkansas had four players score in double digits, with forward Coty Clarke leading all Razorback scorers with 16 points. The team shot 64.7 percent from the free throw line, 43.1 percent from the floor and 41.2 percent from 3-point range.

The Tennessee Volunteers will travel to Gainesville to face the No. 7 Florida Gators on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET. The Razorbacks will return home and welcome the Auburn Tigers on 6 p.m. ET on Saturday.
