Alabama vs. Tennessee Rivalry...National Respect?



All Alabama and Tennessee fans out there know what this Saturday is. It's about a relationship built on hate. These two teams can not stand eachother. This makes for the best rivalry in college football. But, also every Tide and Vol fan probably knows about a show called College Gameday. While no one really anticipated this game to be the feature game on the show, neither did they that Kentucky's football team would. The Tennessee vs. Alabama game is usually a contest on CBS. With a starting time of 3:30, it's the game of the day. Tomorrow's might not be the case. The game is on at 12:30 on Lincoln Financial Sports regionally. Which means this "morning" game will not be seen around the country.


As I was getting too earlier though, before my tirade, the show College Gameday. They will feature a short on Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge and his senior leadership.

Things to Watch Saturday:

-Tennessee's Offensive Line

  • The Offensive Line for Tennessee has given up just 2 sacks all season.

-Penalties

  • Tennessee is also one of the least penalized team's in the nation. (1st in SEC)

-Passing and Running Game

  • In particular wide receiver Lucas Taylor and running backs Foster and Hardesty. (Also Senior QB Erik Ainge.
