Although the college football season approaches, questions concerning the secondary and the eventual starter at quarterback remain for Alabama football heading into the regular season.

For many fans and some in the media, Tua Tagovailoa is the odds-on favorite to get his first start of the season against Louisville on September 1.

In a recent piece, college football writer Justin Nails laid out his five predictions that he is most confident about regarding the upcoming season.

Nails highlighted Alabama's production at wide receiver, Damien Harris eclipsing 1,000 yards rushing for a third consecutive season, the potential for two Crimson Tide defenders to record double digit sacks and Alabama running the table in the regular season.

The Gridiron Now contributor also dove into the topic of Jalen vs. Tua relating to Tagovailoa's chances of being the starter for good starting September 1 in Orlando.

During Thursday's weekly "Deal or No Deal" segment of The Blitz, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston dives into the topics beginning with Tagovailoa being the starter from game one and concluding with Alabama finishing the regular season 12-0.
