TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama center Charles Bediako’s status is uncertain for a top-10 matchup with Tennessee because of a minor knee injury.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide coach Nate Oats said Bediako is “day to day” for a visit to the 10th-ranked Volunteers because of the injury that happened against Auburn.

“He played through it. ... He’s gotten better every day since the Auburn game, so we’ll see where he’s at on game day,” Oats said.

Bediako has started all 25 games for the Tide, which rose this week to its first No. 1 ranking since the 2002-03 season.

He is averaging 5.6 points and 5.3 rebounds while leading the team with 41 blocked shots.
