Alabama is on a magical ride this season, destroying every opponent in their way. Even without Nick Saban, the Crimson Tide rolled their way over the Auburn Tigers on Saturday. After the disappointing season in 2019, Nick Saban and his team are out for blood this season.
The bread and butter of this Alabama team is their offense. The Crimson Tide have put up an impressive 299 points compared to the 148 that they’ve held their opponents to.
Alabama is a team with enough talent to go head to head with an NFL team. This team this season could be the deepest one that Head Coach Nick Saban has ever had in his time at Alabama. Every position on the depth chart itself has, at the very least, three deep. Every player on the Alabama roster, including the walk-ons, could play anywhere else in the country and likely start.
The Crimson Tide also has two Heisman Trophy contenders on the offensive side of the ball, with Mac Jones at quarterback and Najee Harris at running back. Not to mention, Alabama had a third Heisman contender in Jaylen Waddle before Waddle went down with a season-ending injury earlier in the year.
The offense alone, on average, is scoring 48.5 points per game.
The weakness of the Crimson Tide comes on the defensive front and, even that, isn’t all that weak. Alabama has given up 148 total points this season, which 48 of those points came to the Lane train and the Ole Miss Rebels.
Alabama will play the LSU Tigers this week with one thing on their mind, revenge. This year’s game with the Tigers is personal for Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide team. Last season, we saw the rise of Coach O and the LSU Tigers, this season, things are back to normal in the world of College Football. Alabama is back on the throne, while LSU is playing catch up, praying to keep the game on Saturday within two touchdowns.
Once the Crimson Tide roll through the remaining two games in the regular season, they will face the Florida Gators in the SEC Championship game on December 19th in Atlanta.
As far as the rest of the country goes, Alabama seems to be the clear cut favorite to win the National Championship in January. The Crimson Tide is by far the best team in college football so far. When you compare the teams alone, Alabama is far better on paper and the field than any other team in college football this season.
As the old football verbiage goes, all roads run through Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Head Coach Nick Saban and his boys are out for blood and ready to take the College Football world head-on and bring the 18th National Championship to Tuscaloosa.
