The second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide have been truly dominant so far this season, and they will attempt to remain undefeated when they entertain SEC rival Tennessee on Saturday night.
The Volunteers are 3-3 overall this season after suffering losses in three of the last four outings, including two in a row. Last weekend, UT was simply no match for top-ranked LSU, falling to the mighty Tigers by a 38-7 final in Knoxville. Now, Derek Dooley's team must take on an opponent just as talented on the road, a scary proposition for Vols' fans.
Alabama destroyed Ole Miss last weekend by a 52-7 final on the road and has won all seven of its games by 16 or more points, including five wins by at least 34 points. The 52-point effort against Ole Miss marked the highest output for the Tide against an SEC opponent since 1990. Now in his fifth season as head coach at Alabama, Nick Saban has led his club to a 16-1 record in the month of October since 2007.
