Tide Prepare for Rivalry with Tennessee

Tuscaloosa, AL---You could say this Saturday's visit to Knoxville will be the toughest test yet for the top ranked Crimson Tide.

Certainly Alabama's looked the part of a number one team in winning it's first 6 games, but let's face it, Michigan and Arkansas weren't as good as they looked in the preseason.

And the wins over Western Kentucky, FAU, Ole Miss and Missouri were expected to be easy, and were.

Though the Vol's at 3-3 have shown weaknesses, especially on defense, they are formidable and Nick Saban knows it!

"They have one of the best offensive teams in the country, statistically. They have two great receivers, who are some of the top receivers in our conference. They have a talented quarterback who's done a fantastic job for them this year. They have a big offensive line and they've been able to create balance on offense."

As for 'bama's offense, quarterback AJ McCarron saying Tuesday he's ready to go. He was rumored to have torn his meniscus on this play, rumor turned out to be bogus. Just a bruised knee the team says and again AJ will start Saturday night at Neyland.
