Randy’s Free Pick
The Tennessee Volunteers are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, where they’ve been terrific all year, but it’s Alabama that’s playing the better ball right now and has proven itself on the road. This will also be just the fourth time this season the Crimson Tide are underdogs. Two of the best teams in the country. Give me the team that’s getting free points.
