Game Time, TV Announced for Alabama – Tennessee on October 21
One of the south’s great rivalry games will be played at Bryant-Denny Stadium next Saturday and we now know the kickoff time.
The Southeastern Conference announced on Monday that Alabama-Tennessee, which is affectionately known as the Third Saturday in October, will be played at 2:30 p.m. and be shown nationally on CBS.

The Crimson Tide will look to extend its winning streak to 11 games in the series, which would tie the previous record that was set under Bear Bryant from 1971-81. Although there have been a handful of close games during the current 10-game winning streak, Alabama has beaten Tennessee by an average of 23.2 points per game since Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa.
There likely won’t be many people picking the Vols this year. After an 0-2 start in the SEC, which included a historically bad loss to Georgia, Butch Jones is squarely on the hot seat with many wondering if he’ll make it through the season.
Pregame coverage for the game will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tide 102.9 and 95.3 the Bear in Tuscaloosa.
