3. Win the Return Game
If there is one area where Tennessee has a clear-cut edge over Alabama, it’s the punt and kick return game.
Evan Berry is statistically the best kickoff returner in the country with an average of 40 yards per return. And whether it be Cam Sutton or Alvin Kamara fielding punts, both players have proven to be threats as return specialists.
Ideally, Tennessee would score at least one touchdown from kick or punt returns. But at the very least, Tennessee needs to win what it is supposed to win – the return game.
