CHALLENGES

Tennessee presents another mediocre SEC East opponent for the Tide. The Vols have a fairly stout defense but offensively UT has struggled. Tennessee has juggled quarterbacks and recently demoted starter Quinten Dormady in favor of redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano. The result was a nine-point offensive output in a home loss to South Carolina. Tennessee doesn't have the horses or coaching to stay on the field with Bama. Alabama should wake up on Sunday morning 8-0 if they take care of business.

Saturday's game with Tennessee kicks off at 2:30 pm CT and can be seen on CBS.
