SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 3

This week, it's mostly a week slate of games, headlined by one bona fide prime matchup (LSU at Auburn), although Alabama-Ole Miss won't be far off. Looking for a game off the radar that could get interesting? Vanderbilt-Notre Dame, as the Commodores are playing to a higher level than was expected.

Previews 2018: Florida, Georgia and Kentucky

Jim McElwain just couldn't hang on, and the Gators finally moved on from him to Dan Mullen; Most were expecting an improvement in Kirby Smart's second season; not so many were expecting Georgia to be a blown coverage away from a national championship; If ever an upcoming season felt like a season of change, Kentucky's 2018 year is beginning to take on that characteristic.

Clemson wrap-up: How Bama recovers – or doesn’t – will determine much of program’s...

Whether you're an optimist (“We still have Nick Saban!”) or a pessimist (“This was the beginning of the end!”) about Alabama football probably hinges on how many total points you thought swung about on two poor decisions and throws from QB Tua Tagovailoa, and Alabama's response to it.

Missouri preview: Banged-up Tide could get a test from high-flying Tigers

Although the Missouri Tigers come to Tuscaloosa riding a two-game losing streak, there is an uneasiness about this matchup that has its roots both in the history of the Alabama-Missouri series and also the high-wire act Alabama Crimson Tide has put on through the season's first month and a half.

MSU preview: Bulldogs could be Tide’s biggest regular-season test

Mississippi State isn't all that likely to beat Alabama, but Tua Tagovailoa making a second consecutive fourth-quarter appearance isn't just a possibility; we think it's all but assured. With Auburn a bad matchup for what Alabama is capable of doing with its defensive front, the game against the Bulldogs of Starkville, Miss., may end up being Alabama's biggest challenge of the 2018 regular season.

Auburn preview: Tigers will be tough, but upset chances are low

Auburn has a solid quarterback, but not one that would threaten to take over a game against a secondary many believe to be elite. The game isn't in Auburn, where weirdness is born, fertilized and cultivated into something so bizarre it begins to appear as if it should have been scripted by William S. Burroughs. And Alabama, most certainly, doesn't have an explosiveness problem. The Tide has been as combustible as a sack of nitroglycerin in 2018.

Texas A&M Wrap-up: Tua Shows Out, Bama Shows Up Aggies

Alabama is killing people through the air right now thanks to Tua Tagovailoa, a peerless wide receiver corps, and an offensive line that has perfected the art of pass protection. Tagovailoa was not sacked a single time against Texas A&M, and was left mostly clean besides.

Rating the SEC recruiting classes

The Bulldogs probably signed the best recruiting class, top to bottom, in modern college football history, eclipsing the class Alabama brought together a year earlier.
