The Third Saturday in October

Vols 51, Crimson Tide 43

After 5 gut-wrenching overtimes, Tennessee defeated Alabama tonight to take the traditional third Saturday in October meeting. Neither team played especially well, but most importantly Tennessee played slightly better than Alabama. It always feels good to beat Alabama, and I feel that the old rivalry that has waned in the past few years has been recharged—especially after this game. Go Vols!
