The 2016 meeting between Alabama and Tennessee looks like it might be the most meaningful matchup in the series in years. 

Alabama, undefeated and ranked No. 1, has to travel to Knoxville on October 15 to face Tennessee, undefeated and ranked No. 9, in a game that could have significant College Football Playoff ramifications. Alabama has won all nine meetings since Nick Saban became head coach in Tuscaloosa.

CBS Sports didn't pass up the opportunity to pick up the game, which means the Third Saturday in October will kickoff at 2:30 PM and be nationally televised. Alabama has played just once in the SEC Game of the Week and that was a 48-43 win in Oxford.

Both the Crimson Tide and Volunteers will have big tests before the two teams square off. Alabama travels to Fayetteville to play No. 16 Arkansas while Tennessee heads to College Station to face No. 8 Texas A&M.
