Alabama-Tennessee Series Prediction

Tennessee continued to bulldoze through the SEC and regular season taking another sweep, this one over Missouri. Tennessee leads the conference in almost every offensive stat and many pitching stats. They have two of the best starting pitchers in the country and they have amazing run support for all their pitchers. Tennessee might lose AN SEC game this season but it probably won’t be this weekend.

Tennessee 3 wins, Alabama 0 wins
