It's not the most glamorous of games, but the timing could not be better.

Alabama Crimson Tide 10-0, 7-0 SEC

GAME 11:

Saturday, November 18, 2017, 11am/noon SECN - Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic.

Bryant-Denny Stadium, Tuscaloosa, AL
If there is a line on this game, I have not been able to find it. The ESPN FPI gives the Crimson Tide an 99.7% chance of winning, which seems a little low. It is the first meeting between these two teams.

We know what Mercer is. They are a punching bag for the Tide to work out some issues. Chief among them is getting linebackers Keith Holcombe and Dylan Moses some reps at middle linebacker. There are also a few kinks to be worked out in special teams, mainly punt returns.

It is also SENIOR DAY! Among those to be honored:

  • Robert Foster
  • Tony Brown
  • Hootie Jones
  • Da'Shawn Hand
  • JK Scott
  • Andy Pappanastos
  • Cam Sims
  • Shaun Dion Hamilton
  • Anthony Averett
  • Rashaan Evans
  • Levi Wallace
  • J.C. Hassenauer
  • Joshua Frazier
  • Bradley Bozeman
  • It should be a good day: Mostly Cloudy with 71° by kickoff and cloudy and 73° by the end. There is a 0% chance of rain during the game but it could start raining by the end. There is a -0% chance of a Mercer win.

    You know how to get the Open Game Threads going, right?
