Kool-Aid Mckinstry and Terrion Arnold versus Ramel Keyton and Squirrel White

Last season the Alabama secondary was torched allowing Jalin Hyatt to rack up 207 yards and 5 touchdowns on 6 catches. This season’s Alabama secondary is much improved as Terrion Arnold has developed making one of the Nation’s best cornerback tandems alongside Kool-Aid Mckinstry. The Duo has only allowed one receiver to amass 100 yards receiving in Texas’ wide receiver Ja’Tavion Sanders.

Tennessee lost its lead receiver Bru Mccoy to injury in their week 5 game win over South Carolina. Since then, Squirrel White and Ramel Keyton have been the lead duo for Tennessee combining for 535 yards and 3 touchdowns through 6 games. The Duo has big shoes to fill in replacing the production Jalin Hyatt had versus this Alabama football team.

If White and Keyton are able to combine for 200+ yards versus this rebuilt Alabama secondary it will be very hard for Alabama to win this football game. On the other hand, if Kool-Aid Mckinstry and Terrion Arnold continue their run of success limiting White and Keyton then it will be a long day for Joe Milton and the Volunteer offense.
