The Alabama Crimson Tide will open up this season with Louisville, but when you look throughout the 2018 season, there isn't a game that could sneak up on Alabama this season.

Their toughest road game will be against the LSU Tigers because of the tough in-game environment at Death Valley, but outside of the Tigers their toughest games will both be at home against the Auburn Tigers and the Texas A&M Aggies.

They will also play two quarterbacks who are projected high in the NFL Draft with Drew Lock at Missouri and Nick Fitzgerald at Mississippi State, but both games are at home.

So going into the 2018 season, where does Alabama get a challenge or will they skate by the field and on their way to the SEC Championship game?

ESPN's Brad Edwards joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss Alabama's 2018 schedule, how Nick Saban's managing the quarterback competition between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa, how he would explain the Alabama/Auburn rivalry to an outsider, and Kirby Smart's contract extension.
