Challenges for Alabama

Alabama is coming off a lopsided win over hapless New Mexico State. The Crimson Tide will probably win this game, but they need to win convincingly, at least by a couple touchdowns. Why? Because in the event the Tide loses to Auburn or to Georgia in the SEC Title game, they want to have decent chance of still making the playoff, despite a second loss. It might not be possible with two losses.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
