Speaking of teams who win in boring fashion, the Alabama Crimson Tide do it the same way the Georgia Bulldogs do. And like UGA, they have a mediocre Power Five win on here, although the Duke Blue Devils could turn out to be an impressive team. Anyway, Bama and Georgia seem to once again be on identical paths to Atlanta.
This past weekend, the Tide easily dominated the New Mexico State Aggies. But Nick Saban said he wasn’t pleased with the way the game finished. And why would he be? The Tide failed to cover their 55.5-point spread, so on that front, they were a major disappointment in this game. How could they allow that?
Still, Tua Tagovailoa is off to an even better start than last year, completing 76 percent of his passes for 563 yards, averaging over 10 yards an attempt, with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. And he’s only been sacked once. The whole unit is dominating again. What’s shocking is, despite them being top tier, we had to drop them in our SEC Power Rankings.
A visit to the South Carolina Gamecocks before hosting the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and Ole Miss Rebels is a fall-out-of-bed 5-0 start. There’s no way this team will struggle before the Texas A&M Aggies on the road Oct. 12 coming off their bye week. Until then, they aren’t likely to move from this spot.
