There are a couple SEC teams that have been a thorn in Alabama’s side during Nick Saban’s tenure. Ole Miss has picked up a few recent wins and put a little scare into the Tide a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately for Tennessee fans, the Vols have not been one of those teams. Alabama has won the last 13 meetings in this series, while going 9-4 against the spread in those contests.
As of Friday morning, Alabama is sitting as a -21.5 road favorite at most sports books with the over/under at 66 points.
