No online television for this game tonight as Tennessee gets a chance to vent against an overmatched SEC opponent. A loss is unthinkable and would signal that all is going as the Mayans have foreseen. In more realistic waters, the focus of this game is how the Lady Vols respond to their recent embarrassment in South Bend. Do they take over the game early and prevent an underdog from having hope? Or do they come out flat and allow Alabama to hang around a little longer than they should. Either way, it's a road game, and Tennessee has not been particularly consistent on the road.

Prediction: 92-59 Tennessee.
