Week seven of CFB brings some significant SEC contests and there are big national games with Playoff implications important to Alabama football fans.

Alabama football fans are interested in more than just the Crimson Tide schedule. Check out previews of six, CFB week seven games, around the SEC and the nation.

For every Alabama football fan, there is a primary interest of anything and everything Crimson Tide. Our love of college football does not stop there. Most of us have at least a couple of other teams whose success we enjoy. The teams we regularly root against probably make up an even longer list.

Beyond those interests, there are the two big picture issues. Who will Alabama football face in the SEC Championship game? More importantly, who will participate in the fifth College Football Playoff?

Chasing the answers to those questions is a 14-week ebb and flow quest and there is a long way to go. The performance of the eventual winners in the other four Power Five conferences can have a large impact on Alabama football CFB Playoff chances.

Alabama football could slam-dunk its way to the final four by going undefeated through the SEC Championship game. Only once in Nick Saban’s head coaching career has his team been undefeated, the 2009 Alabama football National Champions.

So we Alabama football fans need to pay close attention to the rest of CFB. Bama Hammer is here to help. In the following pages, our writing staff previews six games from week seven. The key games include two important games in the SEC  and other national contests involving potential CFB Playoff teams.
