A banner reading “Kiffin has small hands ask Layla” was seen flying over Knoxville Saturday afternoon.
The hatred between Tennessee and Alabama runs deep. That has never been more evident than this Saturday afternoon. A plane flew over Knoxville, TN toting a sign bashing Lane Kiffin. The sign accused Alabama’s offensive coordinator of having “small hands” – imploring fans to “ask Layla” his ex-wife, about it. The sign shows the budding frustration Tennessee fans are going through after nine straight losses at the hands of Alabama.

Prior to 1992 Alabama and Tennessee battled every third Saturday of October. Since 1995 the game has only been scheduled on the third Saturday of October just seven times, one of those is Saturday’s contest.
Tennessee lost last week to Texas A&M to drop their first game of the season. Alabama enters this contest undefeated, and with the nation’s No. 1 ranking.
No. 9 Tennessee hosts No. 1 Alabama at Neyland Stadium and the game can be seen on CBS at 3:30 p.m. E.T.
