TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The No. 1/1 Alabama football team held its second practice of the week on Tuesday with a two hour session in full pads at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. The Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) will take on the Tennessee Volunteers (3-3, 0-3 SEC) on Saturday in Knoxville, Tenn.

"It's a very fun place to play with a lot of tradition," junior quarterback AJ McCarron said. "They have a very historic program with a great team and have done a great job with their program. I have gotten to know some guys up there so it should be fun. It will be a great game."

McCarron continues to build his school record of passes without an interception. After passing Brodie Croyle's mark of 190 passes against Mississippi, McCarron now sports a streak of 227 passes without an interception after the win at Missouri.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is slated for 6 p.m. CT, and will be televised nationally by ESPN, with Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge calling the action and Holly Rowe reporting from the sideline.
