Hey Tide fans! Something new I will also being doing this year is giving three bold predictions to keep an eye on each week. I love doing bold predictions, and I will also give my score prediction at the end of the article as well. So let’s get into it!
1.) WILL ANDERSON WILL HAVE 8 TACKLES AND 2 SACKS ON THE DAY:
Will Anderson, as a true freshman, will start at Jack for Alabama on Saturday. Anderson has come in and during fall camp, has turned heads and got the favor from the coaches to be named a starter as a freshman. So, what does he have in store for his first game? He’s going to sack the QB twice and have plenty of tackles to make a great impression for the Tide.
2.) THE JOKER WILL SHOW UP, AND SHOW OUT:
Mac Jones, who very deservingly, won a tough QB battle with Bryce Young and he will lead the troops into battle Saturday. The Joker will show up and show out. I predict he will throw for 250 yards and 3 TD’s. Bryce Young will get his share of touches this week as well.
3) JAYLEN WADDLE WILL HAVE 250+ ALL PURPOSE YARDS:
How can you stop speed? Well, unless you refuse to kick to him, or double team him, Waddle will get his touches and once he does, good luck catching him. You can’t stop speed, and Jaylen is full of speed. Between his Wide Receiver receptions, punt returns, and kick returns, I predict he will get 250+ all purpose yards Saturday night.
You may have already heard the podcast we released tonight, but if you haven’t, my prediction 48-14 Alabama. If you read my article of my Five Bold Predictions of the SEC, I told you that I don’t think anybody is stopping Alabama this year, and Missouri is first on that list.
