There’s a saying about these games: They don’t matter unless you lose them. For Alabama, it’s not just a matter of not losing, but of getting reps for a new offense, a suddenly even younger pass rush, and getting snaps for all the talented freshmen from the ‘16 and ‘17 NSD classes. And, for the love of Loki, no more injuries.
Some of the better games on at mid-day also include:
- Pitt - Penn State (2:30 ABC)
- Western at Sparty (2:30 BTN)
- TCU at Arkansas (2:30 CBS)
- Nebraska at Oregon (3:30 Fox)
If need be, we’ll drop you a second half thread. If not, we’ll see you after the game. Ours will likely be pushed back a few minutes, the CyHawk game (El Assico) is on and it’s delightful.
