One of the best linebackers in the Nick Saban era had to wear Tennessee gear.

Rashaan Evans, a former two-time College Football Playoff National Champion, lost a bet to one of his teammates for the Atlanta Falcons. Cordarrelle Patterson, a wide receiver, played for the University of Tennessee. After he won the bet over Evans, the Auburn (Ala.) native had to wear the checkered orange and white overalls in the Falcons’ locker room.

Patterson took a photo of Evans styling the clothes with the caption, “If you can’t beat them then join them!” 

Tennessee earned a 52-49 victory over the Crimson Tide last week. Alabama now has its attention turned to Mississippi State.
