GAME 2: Saturday, September 11, 2021

Mercer Bears (1-0) at Alabama Crimson Tide (1-0)

Tuscaloosa, AL ~ 3:00pm CT/4:00pm ET, SECN

  • Alabama is back to wearing the crimson jerseys and white pants in their first home game of their 127th season.
  • The University will be honoring the 1981 SEC Championship team with honorary captains Tommy Wilcox and Thomas Boyd.
  • Bring sunblock. The forecast for T-town is sunny with a high of 88°. Note that BDS will have water and breeze stations (PDF). They will also have Water Monsters (PDF) featuring “150-gallon tanks of cold filtered water... Fans are permitted to bring empty, non-glass, bottles/cups inside to fill up at the various water stations.”
  • Remember that ticketing and parking has gone mobile-only.
  • Announcers: Tom Hart and Jordan Rodgers with Cole Cubelic on the sidelines.
  • Eli Gold on Alabama Radio.
  • Alabama is a -53.5 point favorite with an over/under of 60.5. ESPN’s FPI gives Bama a 99.9% chance of winning. Seems kinda low.
