No. 11 Alabama dominates second half to take down SEC rival No. 17 Tennessee

If your smoke alarms are going off in Tuscaloosa, it might be from the cigars at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Alabama was in danger of losing its second straight game to Tennessee, something that hadn’t happened since the early 2000s. But that stretch lives on thanks to Alabama’s dominant second half.

The 11th-ranked Crimson Tide wrecked No. 17 Tennessee in the final 30 minutes of the game to take a 34-20 victory home.

At the half, the Volunteers led 20-7, and all momentum was on their side as they scored a touchdown just before the first half ended. But Bama came out firing.

McClellan ran for 115 yards on 27 carries, and Jermaine Burton caught a touchdown for Alabama.

Bama, now 7-1, will host No. 19 LSU in two weeks, while the 5-2 Vols head to Kentucky next week.
