    Tennessee’s first win over No. 3 Alabama was monumental on its own. The Vols exorcised 15 years worth of demons as Tennessee fans poured on the field as Chase McGrath’s 40-yard field goal ended a thrilling Third Saturday in October.

    While the win is extremely meaningful on its own, it changes the outlook and potential of this year’s Tennessee team.

    Needing a win over Georgia to almost assuredly punch its ticket to the SEC Championship, the Vols season has serious postseason implications. Even with a loss to the top-ranked Bulldogs, Tennessee could still find itself in the College Football Playoff.

    So what are Tennessee’s National Championship odds following its win over Alabama?

    Tennessee’s odds are as low as +1600 on Draft Kings and as high as +2000 on FanDuel to win its first National Championship since 1998.

    Tennessee has the sixth best odds to win the National Championship, coming in behind Ohio State, Georgia, Alabama, Clemson and Michigan.

    While Tennessee has the sixth best odds, they’re significantly closer to No. 5 than they are No. 7. Michigan is between +1500 and +1600 while TCU (who has the seventh best odds) is between +5000 and +6000.

    Tennessee returns to the field at noon ET Saturday against UT Martin. The SEC Network is broadcasting the game.
