Alabama won’t repeat as National Champions!
Alabama won the National Championship last year beating Clemson 45-40. However, they won’t repeat!
Everyone has Alabama ranked as the #1 team in the country. And they should be ranked at the top of the College Football Rankings.
However, we don’t have them advancing to the National College Football Championship series.
Alabama has lost a number of key starters and are still looking for a quarterback. They also play in the tough SEC and have a difficult schedule. We see some very dangerous situations for Nick Saban and his squad.
They have a tough opening season game when they take on USC in Arlington. Most are expecting an Alabama blowout but we’re projecting a much closer game. The Trojans bring an offensive that has 10 returning starters and will challenge the Alabama defense.
Alabama will be favored in most, if not all, of their SEC games. However, their toughest tests will be on the road.
In week three they go to Oxford to take on Mississippi. They’ve lost to the Rebels the last two seasons.
On October 15, after playing in Arkansas the previous week, they go to Knoxville to take on the upcoming Tennessee Vols. Tennessee is picked by most to win the SEC East as they return 17 starters including QB Joshua Dobbs. Alabama squeaked out a 19-14 home win over Tennessee last year.
Then the SEC West will be decided on November 5th when Alabama goes to Baton Rouge. They’ll be playing against an LSU team that has 17 returning starters including Leonard Fournette. The last time these two teams met at LSU the Tide tied the game with 3 seconds to play and won in overtime. We won’t be surprised to see LSU knockoff Alabama.
In the season finale the Tide plays Auburn. This is a big time rivalry game and you never know what can happen. In 2013 Alabama lost to the Tigers in Auburn 34-28 as 10-point favorites.
