The Last Time Alabama Lost to Tennessee: 5,000 Days and Counting

You may have noticed a few extra Alabama-Tennessee items on BamaCentral recently including Rocky Block, the The Bear Playing on a Broken Leg, and Smoking A Cigar on the Third Saturday in October, and it wasn't a coincidence.

Today, June 28, 2020, marks day No. 5,000 since the last time the Volunteers managed to pull off a win against Alabama football in the Third Saturday in October rivalry.
