  Alabama vs. Tennessee Two late Tennessee touchdowns killed the Crimson Tide in this contest as the Vols extended their winning streak over the Tide to 9 straight with this 21-6 victory. After the first Vol touchdown the Tide stormed back and off of a drive engineered by Ed Salem, Tom Calvin, and Charley Davis put the Tide within a point (after Salem failed to convert the extra point) but after that Bama never seriously threatened and Tennessee sealed it with 2 more scores. The 1948 squad finished with a record of 6-4-1 for coach Red Drew.
