One team is coming off a big win, the other off a humiliating loss. Now both teams need an SEC win today. The number four ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the Tennessee Vols face off in a game today which is critical for 6-1 Alabama’s playoff hopes and for 3-4 Tennessee’s dignity. The Tide shellacked Texas A&M last week by a 59-0 final score as it continue to recover from its loss to Ole Miss. The Volunteers are winless in the conference and just got blown out by Ole Miss. Today’s scheduled game starts late and airs on national television.
Alabama quarterback Blake Sims and Tennessee QB Justin Worley have both put up big numbers this season, but haven’t consistently put up big point totals. Both teams are facing relative disappointment this year, as the Tide was expected to be dominant and contend for a national championship (which is still a possibility) and the Vols were supposed to have begun bouncing back from the depths of the Lane Kiffin era by now. Today’s winner will carry a good deal of momentum forward.
Tonight’s Alabama Tide vs Tennessee Vols college schedule football game has a start time of 7:30pm eastern time on TV on ESPN2.
