Challenges for Tennessee

This Tennessee team is obviously improved. Rival schools of the Vols probably don’t want to believe that UT has gotten better but they are. Alabama has a 14-game winning streak over the Vols. That streak has been miserable for Tennessee and its fanbase. The Tennessee players need to look at this game like any other. The Alabama players pull their britches on the same way as the Vols. It’s a football game. Go out and give it your best shot and do not worry about the past.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
