The Crimson Tide returns to the friendly confines of Bryant-Denny Stadium for the 2018 home opener after stomping Louisville into submission in Orlando 51-14.

Arky State defeated Southeast Missouri State 48-21 last week, outgaining the Redhawks 676 to 285.

The Red Wolves will be looking to test the young Bama secondary. The Tide unit had two interceptions last Saturday with one returned to the house by Shyheim Carter. So yeah, they are pretty good.

Several members of the Alabama program will be experiencing their first game in Bryant-Denny Stadium as a member of the Crimson Tide. Not only will players like Saivion Smith and Jaylen Waddle be initiated into the Bama way but also coaches Jeff Banks, Dan Enos, Josh Gattis, Pete Golding, Craig Kuligowski, and Karl Scott.

As always, try to keep it civil in the comments section, unless of course trolls show up. Almost anything goes but please NO Tweets, jpgs, gifs, etc. We ask these things because it slows down load times.
