Alabama-Tennessee Potential Top 10 Duel Grabbed By CBS On 3rd Saturday Of October

A potential top 10 matchup between Alabama and Tennessee on Oct. 15 at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville was grabbed by CBS on Monday.

No. 1 Alabama (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) hosts Texas A&M (3-2, 1-1 SEC) at 8 p.m. Saturday on CBS, while No. 8 Tennessee (4-0, 1-0 SEC) will be at No. 25 LSU (4-1, 2-0 SEC) at noon Saturday on ESPN. Should Alabama and Tennessee each win, the game on Oct. 15 would be at least a top eight pairing and could be higher.
