The struggling Tennessee Volunteers make a visit to face the number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend. Head Coach Bitch Davis could be coaching his last game as the Volunteers coach Saturday.
When Tennessee and Alabama faced off last season, the Crimson Tide destroyed Tennessee at Rocky Top, 49-10. This season, the beat down could be worse.
The Volunteers have had a ton of off the field issues that have kept them from showing their potential. With Butch Davis in charge, it seems like he has lost the locker room.
Tennessee lost last week on the last play of the game at home, against South Carolina, 15-9. The Volunteers offense was horrible at home. They had 253 total yards of offense and scored three field goals in the loss.
The defense did all they could, but it seemed like they were on the field most of the game. South Carolina had possession of the ball 32 minutes. If that happens this week, it could lead to a disaster in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama is clearly the team to beat again in college football. Aside from their week six win at Texas A&M, 27-19. The Crimson Tide have not been challenged this year.
Jalen Hurts led Alabama’s passing attack last week with 155 yards passing, one touchdown and one interception. Running back Damien Harris had nine carries for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Harris averaged 13.7 yards on those nine carries.
Defensively, it is hard to put into words just how dominant the Crimson Tide have been this year. Last week, they held Arkansas to 227 total yards in the 32 point blowout win.

Tennessee is all over the place as a program. With everything going on (we know about) the Volunteers don’t seem to focused on football. This could be disastrous for the Volunteers on the road.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Alabama -36
Tennessee does not have Jamal Lewis and Peyton Manning lacing up their cleats this week. Even if they did, the team has played so bad the past few games they would still get blown out.
Alabama might start out just a bit slow, but will eventually end up destroying the Volunteers. Tennessee has no business being on the field with Alabama this season. Take the Crimson Tide to cover in a massacre at Tuscaloosa.
