It’s Tennessee week for Alabama, one filled with passion of beating a rival and the need to sustain the energy level from the previous week.
With Lane Kiffin’s return to Knoxville, Alabama’s offensive coordinator has dominated the story lines this week.
On Monday, Nick Saban talked about giving him advice on going back to a place he’d left.
Then, it was discovered that a Tennessee politician was using Kiffin for an attack ad on his opponent.
Alabama’s defense has been much improved recently, and a big factor in that success is linebacker Reggie Ragland.
Finally, even though the records don’t meet up and Tennessee hasn’t had a winning season since Kiffin left, it’s still an important game for Alabama.
Lots of reading to prepare you for this Saturday’s game.
