Alabama faced Vanderbilt, their first SEC opponent of the season, and did what they should do to a lesser SEC foe, completely overpowering them on both sides of the ball. The Crimson Tide dominated the Commodores 55-3 in its SEC home opener.
Last Saturday, Alabama had just the game the Crimson Tide needed against Louisiana-Monroe. While it wasn’t perfect, it was a great warmup game before heading into SEC play.
After playing one of the sloppiest games under head coach Nick Saban’s tenure, squeaking out a 20-19 win over the Texas Longhorns last Saturday, the Crimson Tide will be anxious to get back to Bryant Denny Stadium to let out some frustration on their next opponent.
This Saturday in Austin, Texas, the University of Alabama and the University of Texas will face off for the first time since their meeting in the 2009 BCS National Championship game where Nick Saban secured his first of six national championships with Alabama as the Crimson Tide defeated the Longhorns 37-21.
