Alabama football bold predictions vs. Vols

5. Alabama will beat Tennessee 59-17

This score prediction tells a story. For starters, Alabama scores eight touchdowns. That’s enough for Mac Jones to have his standout performance, Najee to score and Bryce to get his first touchdown. Outside of those touchdowns, Will Reichard will make his only field goal attempt. This would keep him perfect on the year.

There’s even room for a non-offensive touchdown for Alabama football. It could be a scoop and score or a punt returned for a touchdown by Jaylen Waddle. This team is so good that they can score in all facets of the game.

Defensively, Alabama would love to pitch a shutout in this game. They have what it takes to do this, but I think that one or two plays will put Tennessee on the board. At the end of the day, this is still a rivalry game. Tennessee will have some surprises and try their best to stay competitive. Alabama’s tackling hasn’t been perfect, and the Volunteer running game might be able to score some points.

All in all, the Crimson Tide will dominate this game in every aspect. Tennessee will try to have its way, but their successes will be few and far between. If these things happen, Alabama will arguably be the best team in college football.
