If Louisville gets hot offensively, it's not completely impossible that this game would turn into a shootout. But if Alabama can slow the Cardinal offense at all, a defense that was already bad and then lost nine starters to graduation would seem to have little chance of stopping what figures to be the most explosive Alabama offense perhaps in all of school history.
This week, it's a A-plus slate of games highlighted by battles to control both the SEC West and SEC East divisions. Alabama gets LSU in the marquee matchup, but Kentucky-Georgia is no slouch.

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.
