Will Alabama’s unbeaten season end soon?
It’s possible with tough games against Tennessee and Texas A&M on the horizon. And according to analyst Paul Finebaum, the best chance for the Crimson Tide to go down is next Saturday in Knoxville.
Speaking on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Sunday morning, Finebaum offered a blunt opinion about the Volunteers’ ability to recover quickly after suffering their first loss Saturday against Texas A&M.
“I think it’s reasonable,” Finebaum said of Alabama’s chances to lose either of its next two games. “And I think the better shot, frankly, is in Knoxville Saturday. Tennessee has not beaten Alabama in nine years. And listen, anyone in America who would bet against Tennessee right now is insane. I can’t explain it. I mean, I watched that game like you did and like the nation did yesterday, and every time I thought it was over, Tennessee pulled something else out. So I think Tennessee has a reasonable shot at beating Alabama this weekend.”
It’s hard to doubt Tennessee, even with the Vols’ double-overtime loss Saturday at Kyle Field. There’s something going on with the Volunteers’ marvelous mojo.
Bet against them at your own risk.
