This time of year doesn’t offer a lot of prime college hoops matchups. At least we have this.

Tennessee will tweet its game against Furman using only quotes from Elf on Wednesday night.

The popular Will Ferrell holiday movie is on television basically on a loop during the month of December. The Volunteers utilized Elf and asked for 500 retweets to tweet in quotes from the movie. They received north of 1,100.

It’s a smart social marketing tactic and Tennessee is probably drawing some positive attention to a team that is off to a very good start. The No. 21 Volunteers host Furman at 9 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
