The game of the year on the Alabama basketball schedule has finally arrived.

On Saturday night, in primetime, No. 4 Tennessee will visit No. 14 Alabama for the first game in the month of March, with potentially a league title on the line.

Both teams currently sit at 12-3 in conference play, and the winner of the matchup will take control of sole first place in the SEC with just two games to go in the regular season.

College GameDay will be live from Coleman Coliseum for the first time in the program’s history. The ESPN show hosted by Rece Davis alongside Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg and more will air from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on ABC the morning of the game with the crew highlighting plenty of aspects of Nate Oats’ program in the process.

Not to mention, it’s the second time we’ll get to see SEC Player of the Year frontrunners Dalton Knecht and Mark Sears go head-to-head this season.

It’s the first game in the month of March between two rivals with everything at stake, what more could you ask for?
