Alabama hasn’t missed a beat since winning the National Championship last season. They’ve started the year by dominating Florida State and Fresno State. The Crimson Tide have played amazingly on both offense and defense. Jalen Hurts has completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns. He has yet to throw an interception. Hurts has been just as impressive running, racking up 209 yards on 25 attempts this season.
The Colorado State defense saw the best of times, and the worst of times, in 2016. On the positive, they recorded the first shutout of an opponent (which was, coincidentally the team Alabama played last week, Fresno State) since the 1997 season. However, the Rams also saw the defense go on a downhill slide in the back half of the season, as CSU allowed 31 points or more in their final four games, including an embarrassing effort against an Idaho offense that tossed up 61 points on the Rams.
That hope won’t do anything but wither and shrivel like a muscadine left on the vine in the Alabama sun. Even then, if by some miraculous development the Ram defense does limit Bama’s potent ground war, they’ll have to keep bigger, faster, stronger receivers in check without a ton of DB depth to spell the starters.
