2. Alabama Football forces at least two turnovers

This has been a disruptive Bama defense all season, but the turnover numbers haven’t been overly impressive. The Tide has only forced nine turnovers through seven games, but that’s partially a product of bad fortune. This defense has only managed to recover two of its ten forced fumbles, both coming against lower-tier competition in Middle Tennessee State and South Florida.

This week, I think those loose balls begin to bounce Alabama’s way, and the Tide will force Joe Milton and the Tennessee offense into at least two turnovers. Should Malachi Moore return to the lineup as expected, it will give this unit a huge boost against the pass and the run.

3. Alabama Football holds Tennessee to lowest point total of the season

Once again, I am putting my faith in the Alabama defense. Tennessee averages 33.5 points per game for the season, but its offense has sputtered in two of three SEC matchups. At the current moment, the Vols lowest scoring outputs of the year were 16 points in a loss to Florida and 20 points in a win over Texas A&M.

The Bama defense will really have to flex its muscle to hold the Vols to two touchdowns or less, but I think it’s a real possibility in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
