Tennessee vs. Alabama: Time, TV Channel, Streaming Link, Broadcast
Welcome to the SEC game. The 14th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers will begin their quest for an SEC regular-season title tonight, making a big road trip to Tuscaloosa to face the 19th Alabama Crimson Tide.
Tennessee are 9-2 after a non-conference game, after a huge win over previously undefeated Arizona. Alabama is suddenly in trouble after losing to Davidson. The week before, Alabama had been upset by Memphis on the road. On the flip side, just a week before that, Alabama toppled Gonzaga and Houston.
Before the upheaval, Alabama rose to 6th place in the AP polls. KenPom currently ranks them 19th, bringing the nation’s 9th best offense to the table. They will face KenPom’s second ranked defense tonight against Tennessee.
The Crimson Tide has all the makings to be an elite team, led by veterans Jaden Shackelford, Keon Ellis and Jahvon Quinerly. Five-star first-year goaltender JD Davison is also in the game.
As we have seen since the arrival of Nate Oats, Alabama will live and die at three. They are currently sixth in the NCAA by three-point attempt, averaging 30 per game. As always against the Tide, Tennessee’s perimeter defense will be a huge key tonight.
Alabama won both meetings with Tennessee last season. The Crimson Tide, which plays at home tonight, is the 3.5-point favorite by DraftKings Sportsbook.
