Vols' Sentimore wants to beat his former team

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee defensive end Darrington Sentimore says he still has plenty of friends at Alabama, where he began his college career. It doesn't appear Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban is among them.

The 6-foot-2, 288-pound Sentimore has extra motivation Saturday when Tennessee faces the top-ranked Tide, saying, "I want this game more than any other game because I want to beat Saban."

Sentimore played sparingly for Alabama in 2010, but he was suspended indefinitely in June 2011 for an undisclosed violation of team rules. After the suspension, Sentimore spent last season at Gulf Coast (Miss.) Community College before signing with Tennessee.

Sentimore has collected three sacks and four tackles for loss to lead the Vols in both categories.
