Alabama vs. Tennessee: Should the Crimson Tide Be on 'Upset Alert' vs. the Vols?

Barrett SalleeSEC Football Lead WriterOctober 15, 2012

Alabama will travel to Knoxville on Saturday for this year's edition of the "Third Saturday in October," in a game that could solidify Vols' head coach Derek Dooley's place on the coaching market next season.

The Crimson Tide is on one of the hottest streaks in America, having won 19 of its last 20 games, including the 21-0 beat-down of LSU in the 2012 BCS National Championship game following the 2011 season.

The Vols are desperate, and a win over the Tide would cure what ails them.

Is this the weekend that Alabama stumbles?

B/R contributor Marc Kohn and SEC lead writer Barrett Sallee break down the Alabama vs. Tennessee game in this edition of "The Program."
