Clash of the Titans

The much-anticipated showdown between the two SEC West powers took a king-sized hit when Tua left the Tennessee game with a high ankle sprain. The two finest quarterbacks in college football squaring off in a match with massive implications usually can only be seen in a Hollywood film. Now, Alabama fans worried if the junior can return to face LSU.

The time has arrived, and Saban adamantly mutters that the quarterback is a “game-time decision.”

The respected Alabama offensive line cannot gift wrap a less than a hundred percent Tua to the Tigers. He has to remain upright and off of Bryant Denny’s grass field.

Tigers defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will throw sophisticated defenses at him and see how he reacts. If he cannot move around and make pinpoint throws we have grown accustomed to, Alabama could be in trouble. Hopefully, this is not the case.

Alabama football is still a 6.5 point favorite over LSU. Hopefully, Vegas is right.
