The Alabama Crimson Tide will play its next home game in Bryant-Denny Stadium under the lights against the hated Tennessee Volunteers at 6 p.m. on October 23, the SEC announced Monday.

Alabama holds a 14-game winning streak against Tennessee, the largest streak in the series doubling Tennessee's best streak from 1995-2001. As such, the Tide has a 58-37-8 advantage (on the field, 2005 victory for Alabama is vacated) in the series heading into the 104th all-time meeting.

Last year, Alabama crushed Tennessee 48-17 despite losing star wide receiver Jaylen Waddle early in the contest. Najee Harris scored three rushing touchdowns while Mac Jones completed 25 passes for 387 yards to leave Neyland Stadium with a win.

This season's matchup will be the first with head coach Josh Heupel leading the Volunteers. Tennessee is 4-2 under his stead with recent blowout wins over Missouri and South Carolina creating a mountain of momentum for the 'Power T.'

The Vols made a quarterback change from Michigan transfer Joe Milton to Virginia Tech transfer Hendon Hooker. Hooker has been the source of energy for the Volunteer offense since taking full control of the offense, passing for 1,063 yards and 13 touchdowns to just one interception so far this season.
