It may actually be the fourth Saturday in October, but SEC football fans could be forgiven for feeling stuck in a time machine, as today marks the famous Third Saturday in October game between undefeated Alabama (4-0) and conference rivals Tennessee (2-2). It’s a historic clash that dates back to 1901, with the Crimson Tide leading the series 56-38-7 (wins, losses, ties) and looking to extend a 13 game winning streak against the Volunteers. Follow our guide as we explain how to get an Alabama vs Tennessee live stream and watch college football online wherever you are right now.
Alabama vs Tennessee live stream
Alabama vs Tennessee kicks off today (Saturday, October 24) at 3.30pm ET / 12.30pm PT in front of a 25% capacity crowd in Knoxville, Tennessee. Full TV and college football live stream details are below – and you can watch from anywhere with the help of a good VPN.
The last time the Volunteers won? That would be back in 2006, when they beat Alabama 16-13 in front of over 100,000 fans at the Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. They’re playing at home again this Saturday, but pulling off a similar result today would be an upset of historic proportions.
Bama are fresh off an impressive win over No. 4 ranked Georgia last week and signal-caller Mac Jones has looked like one of the best quarterbacks in Division I so far this season. With 22 National Championships to their name and five in the last 10 years, the Crimson Tide are arguably the country’s top program and a modern day college football dynasty.
Tennessee, for its part, has six National Championships to its name – the most recent being all the way back in 1998, just after future NFL Hall of Famer Peyton Manning had hung up his Vols jersey for the last time and been drafted by the Indianapolis Colts.
On paper, this one looks like a walkover for the Crimson Tide – but 2020 continues to make Stranger Things look like a documentary, so who knows what might happen this afternoon in Knoxville? Read on as we explain how to watch an Alabama vs Tennessee live stream and get a college football live stream from anywhere in the world.
How to watch Alabama vs Tennessee from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
