LOOK: Airplane in Alabama has a loving message for Tennessee's Butch Jones

Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who is on one of the hottest seats in America, will lead his Volunteers. -- winless in conference play -- into Bryant-Denny Stadium to play top-ranked Alabama on Saturday afternoon 

He's not exactly receiving a warm welcome in enemy territory.

An airplane is flying around Tuscaloosa with a banner that reads, "Butch, your mom still loves yuo." Yes, the word "you" is spelled incorrectly. 

Tennessee hasn't scored a touchdown in 10 quarters and hasn't scored from inside the 5-yard line since the first quarter of the second game of the year. Rumors have circulated around the college football world that Jones' job is in jeopardy. 

The Volunteers are more than five-touchdown underdogs against their rivals in the game known as "The Third Saturday In October," which will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET live on CBS.
