Alabama So Far This Season

From "Just like any team, Alabama is a few injuries away from a potential disaster, but Tua Tagovailoa’s knee (re-)injury doesn’t appear to be serious. Tagovailoa threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns before exiting and apparently could have come back into the game if the score had been a little closer."

Alabama vs. Tennessee Betting Trends, Prediction

From Bookmaker: "There’s always a must-see game in the SEC and this one of them. Not because the Vols have a chance of pulling off the upset, or because they’re in the race for a CFP berth. They don’t and they aren’t. Rather because Saban will be facing one of his former assistants – again. In one of the strangest coaching searches, Tennessee eventually hired Pruitt away from Saban’s staff to become head coach, and for the second time in three seasons, Saban will gaze across the field at his former defensive coordinator.

"In 2016 it was Kirby Smart who left to take the head job at Georgia. This time it’s Pruitt, who replaced Smart on Saban’s staff and put together one of the best defenses in college football. The Vols are hoping Pruitt has the same success Smart’s had with the Bulldogs, claiming a SEC title and reaching the CFP in just his second season."
