I like Bama to win 52-10 over the Vols on Saturday.  Alabama and Tennessee will meet for the 100th time on Saturday. The Crimson Tide leads the all-time series, 54-37-8 (52-38-7 after vacations), and won last year’s meeting, 49-10, in Knoxville. Alabama has won the last 10 meetings between the two schools, including a 19-14 win in the Volunteers’ last visit to Tuscaloosa in 2015. Head coach Nick Saban is 12-1 in his career against Tennessee, including a 10-0 mark at Alabama. Tennessee head coach Butch Jones is 0-4 all-time against the Crimson Tide.

 

Earlier today, Alabama placed five players on the first-ever Associated Press Midseason All-America Team, the most of any school. Defensive backs Levi Wallace and Minkah Fitzpatrick were first-team selections, while offensive lineman Jonah Williams, center Bradley Bozeman and defensive lineman Da’Ron Payne all received second-team nods. The midseason All-America recognition was the third for both Fitzpatrick and Bozeman, the second for Wallace and the first for both Williams and Payne.
