Alabama, Tennessee fans going after each other before game

The Tennessee Volunteers against the Alabama Crimson Tide has always been one of the most heated rivalries in the SEC. Both teams’ fan bases have a history of old fashioned hatred that extends beyond the stadiums where the games are held.

This year is no different and the following two pictures put it into perspective a little bit.

The game will be in Tuscaloosa and Tennessee, despite beating an overrated South Carolina team at home last weekend, really doesn’t seem to have much of a chance this year, on the road, against Nick Saban’s bunch.

The Vols are sitting at 4-3 (1-2 SEC) and haven’t beat the Tide since 2006. They also played a close game against a depleted Georgia team just a couple of weeks ago, but fell in multiple overtimes.

Bama is 7-0 (4-0 SEC) and of course coming off of back-to-back national championships. More importantly, their closest win this season (outside of Texas A&M) was 25 points.

Regardless of the outcome Saturday, the hatred between these two will continue.
