Alabama and Tennessee matchup in a game that many think will end in a blowout at Bryant-Denny Stadium. As 34.5 point favorites, Alabama comes into the game undefeated as they look to run through the SEC schedule undefeated.
Alabama has a tough schedule ahead as they have LSU, and Auburn coming up in the next couple of weeks, so this will be a true warm up game for the Crimson Tide.
Tennessee has scared some teams at home, almost beating the Georgia Bulldogs who were ranked inside of the top 25 before losing last week. The Volunteers go into Alabama struggling, but have shown promise at times that they can move the ball down the field.
This will be a great primer for other SEC matchups this weekend, we will see if the Crimson Tide can overcome the huge spread.
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Alabama Crimson Tide come back home to Bryant-Denny as the number one team in the country and are looked at as one of the teams to beat in the college football playoff. Led by Tua Tagovailoa, the star quarterback is at the front of the Heisman race and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Tagovailoa has over 2000 yards passing and 27 touchdowns through the air, leading the Crimson Tide on offense. Alabama has their usual plethora of talent on the offensive side of the ball with Jerry Jeudy leading all receivers in touchdowns and yards.
We should see the firepower for the Crimson Tide once again at home this week, beating up on a Tennessee team should be the play here.
Tennessee is coming into this Saturday matchup against Alabama at 2-4 and little signs of life against teams that have much of any offenses. The Volunteers were able to beat Mississippi State last week 20-10 where their defense was the star of the show.
The Volunteers have struggled mightily on the offensive side of the ball, only averaging 23 points a game and having a quarterback controversy for most of the season. Freshman quarterback Brian Maurer has started the last two games and played sub-par.
Maurer has four interceptions to his two touchdowns, but we have seen a spark with the Vols team overall. We will see if that spark stays alive in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
Alabama is heavy favorites in this game for a good reason, there should be no letdowns and no looking past the Tennessee team that has given other teams some scares. Look for Alabama to really put the screws to the Volunteers and run away with this game easily.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Alabama -34.5.
34.5 points is a ton of points to cover for any team. When you have the Heisman front runner on your side, that might be a different story. With Tagovailoa running the offense and a ton of great receivers on the outside, this could get ugly really quick for the Vols on the road.
Tennessee turns the ball over at way too high of a clip for them to have any chance on the road, they will be able to put up enough to make it close to covering but should fall just short in the end.
Look for the Crimson Tide to breakaway late and show everyone why they are the number one team in the country.
