Watch to see if Nick Saban can continue his success last weekend with the live stream for the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
The first weekend in college football has come and gone. Winners, losers and upsets were plentiful, but sometimes unexpected. Whether your team was on the winning side or the losing side, you are hooked. College football fans were blessed to open up the season with such great games, but unfortunately, that won’t be the case in Week 2. College football continues this weekend with some less than stellar matchups. While the games may not be media gems, good football will still dominate the weekend.
Against the USC Trojans last Saturday, the Alabama Crimson Tide mopped up the competition, as USC let the game become a blowout by the second half. Media outlets throughout the sports world questioned the toughness and ability of the Tide prior to their opening game. They were wrong, as Nick Saban and his squad played exactly like Alabama is supposed to play. Perhaps they played even better than usual. For those who thought the dynasty was finished after last year, watch out, the Tide have just become the favorite again.
On the back of freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts, the Tide look to rout Western Kentucky and put them out of the game early. Saban will want to rest his guys before the season really starts firing on all cylinders. While this may be a blowout by the fourth quarter, look for Western Kentucky to score early and put pressure on Alabama. By no means am I saying the Hilltoppers will win, but they may be in the game through the first quarter, especially if the Tide suffer a let down early. Western Kentucky is going to pull out all the stops to try to get the upper hand early and compete. Can they make it a game?
