I'm seriously expecting a 3 to 4 touchdown win. Here's what I'm looking at - Trent Richardson and Mark Ingram carrying the ball about 15 times each, with Roy Upchurch coming on HUUUGE in the 4th quarter. By midway through the 3rd quarter, their defense, which has such a lack of depth, will be so worn down that it won't matter which running back is in the game. The Tide offense will be able to run for at least 5 yards a pop.
Tennessee's offense won't be able to run the football like they did against Florida to make the game shorter. Our defensive line outmans their offensive line just ridiculously, and the pressure that we'll bring on Crompton will be unlike anything he's seen all year. He was flustered against UCLA's defense, which was rushing only 4 and 5 at a time. Imagine what kinda mistakes he'll make when we bring 7.
Look for a blowout of epic proportions in this series. Nick Saban hates Tennessee with a passion, and this is one of those circle games that he sets up every year. We've only had one so far this year - Ole Miss. Then we have Tennessee, and of course Auburn. He knows that UT and AU are the two games he HAS to win every year to keep us happy. Same way Urban Meyer knew he had to beat UT, UGA, and Florida St every year.
