Ask just about any Tennessee fan who the Vols' greatest all-time rival is, and the answer will most likely be either Alabama or Florida.

What a lot of people don't realize is that the Orange & White have had over twice as many contests against 'Bama than the Gators, totaling 98 meetings since 1901 versus 46 meetings with the Gators since 1916.

As a VFL, the Vols-Bama "Third Saturday in October" tradition means something particularly significant to Joey Kent.

"Alabama is going to be Tennessee's biggest rival for forever," Kent said.

Watch the Insider Report in the video above to hear Kent give his thoughts from the heart about the Vols' longest rivalry as well as his score prediction for the weekend's matchup.
