Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Tennessee Volunteers: Complete Game Preview

The third Saturday in October is an annual rivalry that pits the Tennessee Volunteers against the Alabama Crimson Tide. For over 100 years, the game has seen numerous storylines play out, and this year, its the continued dominance of the Tide versus the rebuilding effort of Vols.

Ever since Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa in 2007, Alabama has dominated the series, winning by an average of 21.6 points. The Vols last defeated the Tide in 2006.

Alabama (6-0) comes in as the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP and USA Today Polls, as well as No. 1 in the first release of the BCS Standings.

Tennessee (3-3) saw its first AP ranking in four years evaporate after a much-hyped game against Florida ended in a 17-point loss. The Volunteers are definitely hungry for their first significant win in four years.

Alabama, however, is unlikely to be the team that cures that hunger.
