Vols set to take on top ranked Bama

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The Tennessee Volunteers will try to slow down tailback Mark Ingram and No. 1 Alabama.

The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) hosts the Third Saturday in October rivalry on Saturday aiming to stay perfect. The Volunteers (3-3, 1-2) are seeking to avoid a third straight loss in the series.

This is the second time they played the No. 1 team in the nation in Lane Kiffin's first season. The first time, the Vols pushed current No. 2 Florida before losing 23-13 after plenty of offseason bickering.

Alabama jumped over the Gators just in time to give the Vols a second shot, following a 20-6 win over South Carolina.

Ingram has run for career highs in each of the past two games, totalling 418 yards.
