Alabama showed Tennessee and the rest of the country why it is still the best team in the country, and the top program in the SEC Country Power Poll.
The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 SEC) hammered the Volunteers 49-10 in Neyland Stadium on Saturday. Honestly, the game wasn’t as close as the final score indicated.
Alabama’s offense pounded Tennessee on the ground for 438 yards and 5 rushing touchdowns.
Alabama’s defense held Tennessee to just one touchdown while scoring a touchdown on an interception return.
Alabama’s special teams added a punt return touchdown to give the Crimson Tide’s its 11th non-offensive touchdown of the season.
There isn’t a phase of the game that Alabama can’t hurt teams in.
The win over Tennessee sets up a top-10 matchup between Alabama and Texas A&M on Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The winner of that clash will have the inside track to winning the SEC West.
