Alabama returns home for a Southeastern Conference Eastern Division matchup against Tennessee in Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, October 22.

HEAD COACH NICK SABAN:

Alabama head coach Nick Saban (Kent State, 1973) is in his fifth season with the Crimson Tide. Named the school's 27th head coach on Jan. 3, 2007, Saban has compiled a 45-11 record (50-11 before five vacated wins in 2007) at Alabama while leading the Tide to two SEC Western Division championships, one conference title and one national championship. Saban holds a career record of 136-53-1 (141-53-1) as a collegiate head coach, while also serving at Toledo, Michigan State and LSU. Saban won his first national championship as head coach of the LSU Tigers in 2003, guiding the Tigers to a 13-1 record that season. Overall, Saban has coached four conference championship teams (1990 Mid-American, 2001 SEC, 2003 SEC and 2009 SEC) and 11 of his 14 teams have played in postseason bowl games with the Tide appearing in a bowl game each year under Saban's direction. Saban is also the only active coach to win two BCS National Championships and the first to accomplish the feat at two different schools.

RANKINGS:

In the latest polls released on October 16, Alabama remains at No. 2 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 3 in the USA TODAY Coaches' Poll. Tennessee is not ranked in either poll.

NEXT GAME:

Alabama will have a week off before returning home to take on No. 1/2 LSU on November 5. The meeting between the Crimson Tide and Tigers will be the 75th in a series that dates back to the 1895 season.
