Not Alabama Football Regular Season Opponents

Virginia Tech 17 – North Carolina 10

It is easier to say after the fact – but can anyone really be surprised that UNC was overrated. We all had two clear cues – the ACC and Mack Brown. Our first ‘Pretender’ of the season.

Oregon 31 – Fresno State 24

Not an impressive start for the Ducks.

Iowa 34 – Indiana 6

The Hoosiers get the award for the most overrated team in week one.

Texas 38 – Louisiana 18

Good first win for Sark and the Longhorns.

Notre Dame 41 – Florida State 38

The luck of the Irish and a heart-breaking loss for FSU.

Kentucky 45 – Louisiana Monroe 10

Penn State transfer, Will Levis to Nebraska transfer Wandale Robinson, looks like a serious weapon for the Wildcats. With new OC, Liam Coen, the Cats are throwing on early downs and using play-action effectively. SEC East teams cannot afford to underestimate Mark Stoops’ team.

Marshall 49 – Navy 7

Great first head coaching win for former Crimson Tide running backs coach, Charles Huff

Maryland 30 – West Virginia 24

Former Tide QB, Taulia Tagovailoa had a big day for the Terrapins, throwing for 319 yards and three touchdowns.
