I am not the biggest football fan in the world, but my husband is a huge Alabama fan and he's always wanted to see a game in-person but has never been. So as a treat to him, I bought tickets to the Alabama vs. Tennessee game on October 25th. I thought we could make a fun weekend out of it so we have reservations to stay in a nice resort in Sevierville, TN.

The only issue I am running into is it's difficult to PLAN anything when the time of the game is TBA. So I thought I'd ask all you football buffs
1) What time are football games usually? Are there a few different "normal" times?
2) Anyone have a prediction on what time this game will be on?
3) What is the LATEST the game could go? I am thinking about making dinner reservations but do not want to do so if we will still be there.

Hard to say. It could be afternoon, or it could be evening. The almighty TV gods will decide in the next week or so. If it ends up being an evening game, it may not start until 7.

I checked a few sources that I have and all say TBD except for SeatGeek (a ticket sales site) and they have this;
Alabama Crimson Tide at Tennessee Volunteers Football
Neyland Stadium — Knoxville, TN on Sat Oct 25 at 12:00pm
Who knows if they're correct? But it would probably be right.
The other game that could be on ESPN at noon would be Ole Miss @ LSU. If both of them win today then that game might bump the AL/Tenn game for the time slot.
But, for tentative planning, go with noon for now.

Usually games start around noon, 3:30 and then anytime between 6:30 and 8 (usually 7:30 and 8). The later time is usually reserved for marquee matchups that warrant national broadcasts, which I doubt any Tennessee game does. So I wouldn't image it being bumped to the prime time spot. Games are typically about 3 and a half hours but it's not unheard of for them to run 4 hours or more if it goes into multiple overtimes. I can't imagine that happening with this game, but you really never know.
