We have all waited 247 days to say this, but now we can finally say it: It’s gameday. The quest for Alabama’s 16th national title will begin later on Saturday night in the Lone Star state against the Wisconsin Badgers. This will be the second meeting between the two teams and the Tide will look to even up the series. Although it has been quite a while, the Badgers took the only meeting between the two team with a 15-0 win in 1928.

Alabama hopes to ride their success in domes and improve their 8-2 record since 2009. If Alabama is to make it to the College Football Playoff at the end of the season, they will have conquered the toughest schedule according to ESPN’s College Football Power Index. The Tide will face 10 teams during the regular season that participated in bowls last season.

On the offensive side of the ball, Alabama will have to replace the production of wide receiver Amari Cooper along with record-setting quarterback Blake Sims. Running back Derrick Henry returns as well as running back Kenyan Drake after missing most of last season after an injury in the Ole Miss game. Left tackle Cameron Robinson and center Ryan Kelly are back as two of the key members along the offensive line.’s Aaron Suttles said that this Tide defense has the possibility of being better than the 2011 unit and that is a scary thought. Alabama brings back seven starters on that side of the ball. From all reports, the secondary should be improved with some younger talent back there. If Badgers’ running back Corey Clement is to have any success, he will have earned it. The Tide has only allowed fifteen 100-yard individual rushing performances dating back to 2005. There is also the small detail that three of the Badgers’ offensive linemen will be making their first start.

Tight ends have always performed well in Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst’s system. That position led the Badgers in receiving during Chryst’s time as Wisconsin’s offensive coordinator for four of six seasons. Quarterback Joel Stave is returning for his senior season after compiling a 21-7 record in previous seasons with a 58-percent completion percentage and tossing 37 touchdown passes.

Since we mentioned the Tide’s success against the run, it would be unfair to not give a nod to the Badgers as well. Six of their last fourteen opponents have been held to less than 100 yards and they have allowed only six players to tote the rock for more than 100 yards in the past two seasons.
