The arrival of Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa signified an end to Tennessee's run of dominance against Alabama, and the Vols haven't beaten the Crimson Tide since he's been there.
Last season, UA hammered the Vols 44-13—the Tide's third consecutive 31-point drubbing of UT while Derek Dooley was the Vols' head coach.
AJ McCarron threw for 306 yards and four touchdowns, freshman receiver Amari Cooper had a breakout game with seven catches for 162 yards, and Tennessee got embarrassed. Again.
The famed "Third Saturday in October" hasn't been much of a fall classic lately, and if the oddsmakers have anything to say about it, this year won't be, either. Vegas doesn't seem impressed with Tennessee's 23-21 win over South Carolina last week.
The Vols don't care. Now with Butch Jones at the helm, they'll try to continue their momentum as they hit the road to take on the top-ranked Tide after playing No. 2 Oregon away from Neyland earlier this year.
