KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — One of the Vols' biggest home games now has a kickoff time: UT will play Alabama at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24.

The kickoff at Neyland Stadium was announced Monday afternoon. CBS will carry it.

The broadcast announcement was met by groans of "Not again" from some Vol fans on social media, unexcited about a TV team that includes Gary Danielson. CBS just carried the Tennessee-Georgia game.

Tennessee currently is 2-1 in this all-conference season and faces Kentucky this Saturday in Knoxville.

Alabama is 3-0 and plays Georgia this Saturday in Tuscaloosa.
