Tennessee (4-3, 2-2 SEC) will play at No. 4 Alabama (6-1, 3-1 SEC) Saturday in Week 8.

Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. EDT and will be televised by ESPN.

First-year Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel met with media on Monday and previewed the Vols playing Alabama.

“It’s a huge opponent,” Heupel said. “They’re a really good football team and it’s a rivalry game, one that our guys and staff will be extremely excited about being ready for and going down to Tuscaloosa and competing against a really good football team.

“It starts with their quarterback. He’s a super-efficient playmaker. He’s got dynamic playmakers around him. Defensively, obviously front to back, they’re really good. They’re athletic, have the ability to rush the passer. They can do that with pressures and can do that with just their front four. They’ve got good cover guys on the backend. It’s a big test for us and one that we’re excited about.”
