TUSCALOOSA — The Third Saturday in October rivalry series continues in primetime as No. 1 Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) hosts Tennessee (2-4, 1-2 SEC) under the brand-new LED lights inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The Crimson Tide have won the last 12 games in the series — every game since Nick Saban took over as its head coach in 2007 — and will look to notch lucky No. 13 tonight during the 8 p.m. kickoff on ESPN.

The Crimson Tide will be without the services of leading receiver DeVonta Smith for the first half Saturday while the junior serves a one-half suspension for his ejection late in Texas A&M game last weekend after he was caught throwing a punch at Aggies safety Leon O'Neal Jr. following an on-field scuffle between the two.
