Is this the year that Tennessee finally takes down the Crimson Tide and ends a 15-game losing streak in the series? If Bryce Young can’t go, then the Volunteers’ chances of pulling out the upset would seem better. Tennessee last started 6-0 in 1998. That included a home win over Alabama, which has had to grind out some victories this season . Vols quarterback Hendon Hooker from Dudley High School, in Greensboro, N.C., (1,432 yards, 10 touchdowns; 231 rushing yards) is a serious Heisman candidate and threw for 282 yards with three touchdowns and an interception during a 52-24 loss at Alabama last season that was close into the fourth quarter.
Prediction: Tennessee (+7 1/2)
