It’s one of my favorite times of year again. It’s Halloween season. Kids dress up as their favorite Disney Princess, or their favorite monster. They go house to house getting candy, and the parents have to deal with the sugar rush that night. Another favorite part of this season is the annual beating Alabama gives to Tennessee this time every year. Those cigars always taste better after the victory. Alabama has dominated this rivalry since Saban has been at the helm. This season, that’s not going to change. Here’s my three bold predictions for today’s game:
I expect to see two Qb’s from Tenneessee today. Jarrett Guarantano has struggled as the guy for Tennessee, and was even bench a series last week in a loss against Kentucky, so I fully expect to see Harrison Bailey some today as well.
Alabama keep momentum going and rushes as a unit for over 200 yards. Najee of course will most of the yardage but I have been impressed with Brain Robinson this year as well. He’s not talked about because of Najee, but he leaned up in the offseason, and when he gets the ball, he’s out to find somebody and plow them over. Robinson could easily be a starter at any other school, that’s why I believe him and Najee are the best 1-2 punch in college football right now.
Defense carries momentum from the 2nd half last week and nearly pitches a shutout. Alabama’s 2nd half defense was a thing a beauty to watch, as it pitched a 2nd half shutout to Georgia, and I believe the success found there will carry over this week and Alabama’s D continues to return to the defensive we are used to seeing at Alabama.
Alabama rolls 48-10
