Alabama fell to number five in the College Football Playoff Poll this week after losing to LSU last weekend. In order to continue its perfect streak of appearances in the playoffs the Tide will likely need help from around the nation in the last three weeks. Who should Alabama fans be watching this weekend?

Clearly Crimson Tide fans should plan on watching the Tide at 11 a.m. on ESPN but these are the rest of the games that will impact Alabama’s chances to return to the playoffs.

10 Oklahoma @ 13 Baylor6:30 p.m.ABC

Alabama fans should expect the Tide to care of business against Mississippi State but will also be rooting for the underdogs in these matchups to aid the Crimson Tide’s playoff chances.
