What channel is Alabama vs. Tennessee on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 7 college football game – Sporting News

  • October 15, 2022

It has been quite some time since the “Third Saturday in October” has featured stakes this high between Alabama and Tennessee.
The third-ranked, undefeated Crimson Tide will travel to Neyland Stadium to take on sixth-ranked, also unbeaten Tennessee. It is the first time since 2016, when No. 9 Tennessee lost 49-10 to top-ranked Alabama, that the rivals have met as top-10 teams.
It’s also the first time since the 1989 season — 33 years ago — that these teams meet as undefeated opponents. A Tennessee victory on Saturday would be the first since 2006, and the Volunteers’ first over Alabama since Nick Saban arrived in 2007. It would also represent their first 6-0 start since 1998, a season in which they won the inaugural BCS championship.
Expect Neyland Stadium to be raucous when Saban and Co. come to town.

This meeting also pits together a fascinating quarterback battle — potentially. Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker is a Heisman Trophy candidate at this point in the season, completing 70 percent of his passes for 1,432 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding another 231 rushing yards and three more scores.
He could potentially be in a high-powered quarterback duel with Alabama’s Bryce Young, the defending Heisman winner. However, his status for the game is still questionable after suffering an AC sprain to his throwing shoulder in a Week 5 victory over Arkansas. If he can’t go, Jalen Milroe will get his second start of the season.
