One of the SEC’s oldest and most important rivalries will have another installment on Saturday, as Tennessee heads down to Tuscaloosa to take on the 2-time defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama is undefeated and ranked #1 in the first BCS poll of the season, while the Vols are 4-3 and coming off their first victory over a ranked opponent since 2009.
This week, we wanted to show our appreciation to our readers by including them in a special way. We asked our twitter followers to share their memories of the Tennessee/Alabama rivalry, and here is what they had to say:
@allfortennessee Casey Clausen 4th & 19 in 5 OT game in 2003 was pretty special because they thought they had us then.
