The Vols host Mississippi State this coming Saturday.Alabama, meanwhile, is 5-0 and ranked No. 1 in both major polls.

Alabama-Tennessee is slated for a 9 p.m. ET kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.ESPN will broadcast the game. Earlier today, the SEC announced its entire television lineup for Week 8.It’s not a particularly enticing league slate, so it makes sense that ESPN would want to get Alabama playing in primetime.last_img
