Let's take a look at the 2018 football schedules for both Alabama and Tennessee.
The SEC rivals will face off on the Third Saturday of October, as is tradition. Nick Saban's Crimson Tide will look to continue a huge winning streak over the rival Volunteers, with Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt taking over as head coach at Tennessee.
But what about the 11 other games for each program? Let's take a look at which team has the harder slate.
Alabama's four non-con opponents are Louisville, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, and The Citadel. Tennessee, meanwhile, has West Virginia, ETSU, UTEP, and Charlotte.

Outside of the head-to-head match-up, Alabama has a crossover game against Missouri, while Tennessee gets a tough draw, traveling to Auburn. Verdict: both programs start with a big non-conference game, but the SEC West should be tougher than the East once again. Alabama has the tougher slate here, though considering Tennessee's game against Auburn, it is close.
