Former Vols TE Ed Butler talks about Saturdays Alabama-Tennessee showdown

Posted: Updated:

Ed Butler played tight end and defensive line for the Tennessee from 1997-2000.

Don Hawes had the chance to sit down with Butler to preview Saturday's rivalry game between the Tide and Vols.

"It's about pride," Butler said. "We have some traditions that the NCAA has cutout about our cigars buying and things like that, but its been something, there's a lot of rich history."  

Saturday's game between Alabama and Tennessee has become interesting after the Vols upset then #11 South Carolina. "It's not going to turn around tomorrow," Butler said when talking about the improved Vols. "If we continue to go in that direction, then I think that we will be able to compete pretty soon."

Alabama and Tennessee kicks off at 2:30 p.m. on CBS.
