The Tennessee Volunteers will face the Alabama Crimson Tide in an East versus West matchup in Week 8 of the College Football betting season at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Crimson Tide (3-3) is 5th in the SEC East and Alabama (7-0) is 1st in the SEC West. Week 7 saw Alabama take the #1 spot in the SEC and dethrone Clemson. The Tide’s QB Jalen Hurts has a 63.1 completion percentage with 1025 passing yards and 8 touchdowns. Last week vs Arkansas Hurts threw for 155 passing yards and a touchdown. RB Damien Harris had 125 rushing yards and 2 TDs. WR Calvin Ridley has 51 receiving yards and has 2 TDs on the season.
Alabama has a #7 ranked rushing attack and Tennessee is ranked #122 defending the run. If Alabama choses to run the ball they would keep Tennessee’s defense on the field longer and tire them out. Alabama’s defense is #5 in nation with 10 interceptions. The opening line for the NFL odds makers’ is Alabama as the favorite with a -35(-110) Vegas point spread.
Tennessee will showcase QB Freshman Jarrett Guarantano in his first road start of his career. We will see the return of TE Jakob Johnson who is a key player in the Volunteer’s game. RB John Kelly has 6 rushing touchdowns this season and put up 58 rushing yards last week. Kelly breaks tackles and then gains extra yardage. Can he do what he does best against a hard hitting Alabama defense? WR Brandon Johnson had 54 receiving yards last game and had 259 yards with 1 TD on the season.
Will the Crimson Tide quarterback put the “Hurts” on Tennessee or will Tennessee hand Alabama their first loss of the season?
