Challenges for Alabama
The Alabama players need to be focused on this game. They can’t get those two losses back but they can possibly get another loss if they aren’t focused. Austin Peay is one of the better FCS teams. The Governors are piling up the points and wins. APSU’s quarterback is senior Mike DiLiello. So far this season he’s completed 180 of 298 passes for 2,300 yards, 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He’s also run for almost 450 yards and eight touchdowns. So that’s 29 touchdowns in which DiLiello is responsible.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SECN+/ESPN+ Network.
