No one seems to have an answer against Alabama's Top Ranked Defense
To anyone who was still skeptic about Alabama being the number one team, those questions were answered after Alabama handed #11 Mississippi State a thrashing 38-7 beatdown. For as great as A.J. McCarron and the Crimson Tide offense has been this season, you have to start with their top ranked defense. Through eight games, The Tide have yet to allow an opponent to rush for a total of 100 yards. It's often said in order to get a teams passing game going, you need to establish the run. As mentioned Alabama is the number one overall ranked defense as well as rushing defense. To go along with that, Alabama also has the number two passing defense.
Before giving up a late meaningless touchdown to Miss. St. The Crimson Tide had forced Bulldogs Starting QB Tyler Russell into throwing an INT while holding him too 169 yds. passing, just 24 more than their average allowed. Alabama has an easy road ahead of them, and the only thing that is potentially standing in the way of them reaching the national title game, is themselves.
With their balanced offense and juggernaut defense Alabama is simply hands down, the best team in the country. Expect to see the Crimson Tide finish the regular season undefeated, win their conference championship, and again just like last year, raise the crystal bowl and become back to back National Champions!
