Alabama Crimson Tide (8-3) vs. Texas Longhorns (8-3)

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Crimson Tide wrap up their in-state tour as the Texas Longhorn's come to Birmingham tonight for the Vulcan Classic. Shaka Smart's group will be without their star guard Andrew Jones, but this is still a very capable and well-coached team. A win in Birmingham would be Alabama's first since the Vulcan Classic started a few years ago, and it would provide a big boost heading into conference play next weekend.

Can Alabama secure a big win over a fellow power conference foe? The game tips at 8:00 PM CST and will be televised on ESPN2.
