For the 100th time, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Tennessee Volunteers will battle in a rivalry that has been one sided since Nick Saban's tenure began in Tuscaloosa.

The Volunteers aren't the competitive team under Joshua Dobbs and Jalen Hurds and that has shown this season with the team losing to Georgia and South Carolina at home and has gone ten quarters without scoring a touchdown. On the other side, the Crimson Tide continue to roll through the SEC after defeating the Arkansas Razorbacks 41-9.

Here is who the Tide 102.9 staff has coming out of Tuscaloosa with a victory in a game that was once a rivalry.

Martin Houston, Host of The Blitz

Bama wins the 100th edition of the Third Saturday in October. The Tide will have its most explosive day of offense and will totally rock the young Tennessee QB. Bama wins in blowout fashion. Alabama 55 - Tennessee 6

Barry Sanderson, Co-Host of Inside the Locker Room

Look for Bama to pound the ball early and use 4 running backs in the first half. Bama will build a big lead early but will give up some points late with the reserves on the field. Alabama 41 - Tennessee 17

Wimp Sanderson, Co-Host of Inside the Locker Room

Tennessee will come in with nothing to lose and play loose. That won't be enough as Nick Saban will find the right words to motivate these players. Alabama 34 - Tennessee 6

Gary Harris, Host of The Gary Harris Show

Since Nick Saban arrived at Alabama, the Crimson Tide has owned the Tennessee Volunteers. Alabama is 10-0 against UT under Saban and the odds are pretty favorable that Saban and Bama will extend the winning streak to 11 games on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Yes, Tennessee will be inspired and play hard. Yes, Tennessee will probably have so new wrinkles on offense. No, it won't matter. The Vols just aren't very good. Alabama is. Alabama 48 - Tennessee 10

Travis Reier, Host of Southern Fried Sports

A year ago at this time, the feeling was that the 2016 edition of the third (or fourth) Saturday in October represented UT’s best chance to end Alabama’s recent dominance in the series. The Vols had a seasoned quarterback in Joshua Dobbs; a 1,000-yard running back in Jalen Hurd and one of the nation’s top defensive players in Derek Barnett. Even better, Tennessee would get the Crimson Tide in Knoxville. None of it mattered. Alabama’s 10th straight victory over Tennessee came by 39 points. Dobbs, Hurd and Barnett are all gone, so why should this year be different than any since 2008? Alabama 41 - Tennessee 9

Aaron Suttles, Host of the Suttles Approach

Alabama is just better than Tennessee. There's nothing in-depth analysis required. That said, I think Alabama is really looking forward to the bye week. Alabama 42 - Tennessee 10

Ryan Fowler, Host of The Game

Tennessee has little chance of coming to Tuscaloosa and pulling off a shocker against the Crimson Tide. Nick Saban has defeated 72 consecutive unranked opponents and Tennessee will become the 73rd. My biggest prediction is Alabama fans will be able to light the Cigars and enjoy them during the 4th quarter. Alabama 56 - Tennessee 7

Ben George, Digital Managing Editor

Just when you think this series can’t get any more lopsided, Vegas rolls out a 36-point spread for this rivalry game. What happened to the once-proud program in the Tennessee hills? If you ask their fans, they’d probably point the finger directly at the head coach, but will the team respond with Butch Jones’ back against the wall? That’s about the only way I can see this game being competitive into the second half. Tennessee is near the bottom in almost every offensive and defensive category except pass defense in the conference, and now they have to face the nation’s top team. I think the Vols could spring a long return or two to set up a score, but otherwise it’s going to be a long afternoon in Bryant-Denny. Alabama 45 - Tennessee 10

Josh Smith, Producer

Tennessee's rushing defense has been one of the least consistent in the SEC. The Vols Let up 294 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground against Georgia. I see Alabama prepared to take advantage by using thier multi-back system to wear down the volunteers defense. Look for Jalen to make big plays off play action passes, when the Vols start loading the box. Don't light your cigar just yet, but have one handy. Alabama 45 - Tennessee 0

James Hardy, Producer

The "Champions of Life" enter Tuscaloosa having failed to score a TD in their last 10 quarters. They also possess the one of the worst rushing defenses in the country, and they have the pleasure of facing one of the best rushing offenses in the country in Alabama. Will Damien Harris break out another long TD run this week? We will see. Alabama 38 - Tennessee 6

Thomas Paradiso, Producer

The Third Saturday in October. A rivalry that has been one-sided as of late. Alabama had a few slip ups against Arkansas but still came away with a dominant win. Tennessee on the other hand seems to be off the rails at this point. With it being a rivalry game, I think the Vols do come out with a lot of energy, but with Alabama's backfield firing on all cylinders, in the end I think the Tide prevails. Anybody got a cigar for me?  Alabama 40 - Tennessee 7

Marquis Munson, Brand Manager

I've been looking for the Volunteers offense for a couple weeks now and I still can't seem to find them, besides John Kelly at the running back position. Another freshman quarterback will face this Alabama defense, this one has a little more talent, but the pressure will be on for four quarters. This game could go two ways, either Butch Jones is going to coach a Kevin Sumlin type game and compete with the Crimson Tide for four quarters to possibly keep his job, or he's going to continue to struggle on both ends of the football and get kicked to the curb at the end of the season. I'm going to go with option two and the Crimson Tide makes it 11 straight wins against the Vols. Alabama 45 - Tennessee 6
