KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee coach Butch Jones echoed comments he made during Florida week about the relevance of the Vols’ traditional rivalries.

Right now, he said, they’re too one-sided.

“In order to make these rivalries relevant, we have to start winning more games,” Jones said Wednesday on the SEC teleconference.

During his portion of the call, Alabama coach Nick Saban praised Tennessee’s progress this season.

“They probably have the best overall offensive line we’ve had to play this year,” Saban said.
