Tennessee has one national media pundit believing it will defeat Alabama.
The Volunteers are 5-0 under Josh Heupel in his second season as head coach. Tennessee has a complete team that can score points and shut opponents down. Vols fans are pushing for an “orange-out” at Neyland Stadium for Saturday. Tennessee has not beaten the Crimson Tide since 2006, and it has lost 15 straight games to Nick Saban. Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports says the streak will end now for the Tide. He boldly predicted on CBS Sports HQ that the Volunteers will defeat Alabama in Knoxville, Tenn.

“Tennessee will beat Alabama,” Sallee said. “The streak will be broken. Tennessee will finally beat Alabama for the first time in a decade and a half. That offense will be too much. Bryce Young is still not going to be 100 percent, and if it’s Jalen Milroe, they don’t have a passing attack. That is not a good recipe against a Tennessee offense that can score at will.”
Tennessee is averaging 46.8 points per game. The matchup is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS.
