Comments

The Vols pulled off their first FBS win of the season last Saturday. Unfortunately for Tennessee, they must now head to the nation’s No. 1 ranked team: Alabama. After a few years of Tennessee enjoying a token wins in this series, the Crimson Tide has taken full control. That should continue on Saturday. Papa Saben might show a little mercy on his former pupil but it won’t mean a win for the Vols.
