Alabama Form


Alabama have surrendered the #1 spot in College Football since the season began, but they are 4-0 through four games.

The Crimson Tide opened with a 55-0 shutout of Utah State at home, before heading out on the road to edge Texas 20-19.

That close win cost them the top spot, but Nick Saban’s team have responded with a 63-7 demolition of Louisiana-Monroe and 55-3 rout of Vanderbilt.

QB Bryce Young has gone 83/121 for 1,029 yards, 13 touchdowns and two interceptions, while also rushing for 150 yards and a couple of scores.

Traeshon Holden is the team’s leading receiver with 214 yards and four TDs, while Jermaine Burton and Ja’Corey Brooks have combined for 334 yards and four touchdowns.

The star performer on offense has been Jahmyr Gibbs, who has 359 yards from scrimmage and three TDs.

He is not the leading rusher though – that is Jase McClellan who has 245 yards on the ground and two TDs.

The defense has been dominant, allowing just 7.3 points and 201.3 yards per game, but they have so far struggled to generate takeaways.
