Alabama takes on Tennessee this Saturday as the two schools renew their annual rivalry. The Crimson Tide is riding high on a four game winning streak after defeating Georgia last season 41-24. The Vols are looking to bounce back after losing its last two games to SEC East opponents Georgia and Kentucky.
Saban is a perfect 19-0 when it comes to taking on his former assistant coaches and when the Tide takes on the Texas A&M Aggies this weekend, Saban will have to contend with another of his former employees. In fact, Saban will face a former assistant coach in each of the next four games on the Alabama schedule.
Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt told the media today that the NCAA approved the appeal for immediate eligibility for highly touted transfer offensive lineman Cade Mays. Mays transferred form the University of Georgia to the University of Tennessee this spring after starting the last two seasons for the Bulldogs.
