Even Siri’s apparently jumping on the Volunteers’ bandwagon.

Tennessee is ranked in the preseason AP poll for the first time since 2008, and while human fans of the school are no doubt excited, the iPhone app is buzzing for the Vols as well. 

Siri, as you may already know, is a fan of whatever team is ranked at the bottom of the standings because, as she says, she always likes to “root for the underdog.” Since the Vols are 25th — or last place — in the preseason AP top 25, they get the nod for now.

Tennessee fans are no doubt hoping Siri is NOT rooting for them by season’s end.
