Step Right Up- Alabama Is Waiting!
Alabama won a big game on Saturday against the Missouri Tigers 38-19. As we look through the SEC West, Can anyone challenge Alabama for the SEC West crown?
Alabama plays their first home game of the season against Texas A&M this Saturday. The Aggies, with a surprisingly small margin of victory against Vanderbilt, had a lot of questions on both sides of the football. A&M committed three turnovers offensively. Texas A&M was a 30.5 point favorite over Vandy, so this is serious cause for concern. Can A&M win the big one? It seems highly doubtful.
LSU is reeling today after losing a tough game to Mississippi State 44-34. LSU gave up 623 yards passing, which is now an SEC record. In addition, Mississippi State had three receivers who had over 100 yards receiving-Osirus Mitchell (183), Kylin Hill (158) and JaVonta Payton (122).
Speaking of Mississippi State, is this a team that could challenge the Crimson Tide for an SEC West championship? After week 1, some believe they can. Alabama and State are going to face off on Oct. 31 in Tuscaloosa. The “air-raid” offense of State looked crisp yesterday, but the concerns on defense is still prevalent. State allowed LSU to tie the game in the 4th quarter before scoring 10 points to win. The Bulldogs will not be able to do this against Alabama if they have any chance to win.
In my opinion, there isn’t a team who could challenge Alabama for the SEC West. In fact, there aren’t a lot of teams outside of the Florida Gators who have a chance to defeat the Crimson Tide.
2020 has been an unusual year, but it’s good to see Alabama still competing for a national championship.
