Alabama athletics needs to retire the dorm suite that the Heisman Trophy winners shared in 2020. No more athletes may rest their head in the same space that Smith and Young spent dreaming of their football fortunes.
The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide's first game of the season is on Sept. 4 at 2:30 p.m. in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic against the No. 14 Miami Hurricanes in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Canes are the third-highest ranked ACC team heading into the season and star quarterback D'Eriq King is a preseason Heisman favorite.
