To say the “Third Saturday in October” could use a little spicing up would be an understatement. Alabama has won seven in a row by a landslide, except for the 2009 contest, which was a 12-10 Tide win.
Thankfully, Alabama went and hired former Tennessee coach, and public enemy No. 1, Lane Kiffin, because that’s exactly the kind of juicy storyline the rivalry needed. It gives Volunteer fans something to talk trash about, for now at least.
A Knoxville Moe’s has kicked off the season early by trolling Kiffin on its marquee sign.

Now just imagine if Tennessee finds a way to knock off Alabama in Kiffin’s first season as the Tide’s offensive coordinator.
