Roll Tide Roll
Not since Bear himself, has Alabama beaten a top 5 team in Tuscaloosa. The 5th ranked Florida Gators have a big win over Tennessee at home, but have yet to go on the road. Urban Meyer has won 20 straight games as a head coach, including ten on the road, but his spread offense will face a huge test in the speedy Bama defense.
I liked Alabama in the preseason to win this game on its way to a 9 win season, and there is no reason for me to change my mind, now. I gave a prediction in My Picks, and Herbstreit is on my side. I like the Tide to roll to victory.
