College rivalries just don’t go away once you leave school. That’s true in the NFL, too. New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara and defensive back Tyrann Mathieu were on opposite sides of one last weekend.
Mathieu seems to have lost a bet and had to wear orange Tennessee gear at the Saints facility on Wednesday.

Kamara is one of four former Tennessee players on New Orleans’ roster while Mathieu and wide receiver Jarvis Landry are the only former Tigers.
Tennessee will host College GameDay on Saturday ahead of a huge SEC showdown with the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide in another rivalry game.
Kamara could make a bet with fellow running back Mark Ingram, a former Tide Heisman Trophy winner. But Kamara should be careful. The Vols haven’t beaten the Crimson Tide since 2006 — a year before Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa.
