Alabama vs Florida football: TV Schedule, Odds, Point Spread, Preview

Alabama football faces Florida in one of the marquee college football games Saturday, September 20, at 3:30 PM ET at the Bryant-Denny Stadium, Tuscaloosa, AL.

The No. 3 Crimson Tide (3-0), outlasted Southern Miss, would be tested against the much improved Florida Gators (2-0), who just came from a triple overtime against Kentucky.

Alabama completely subdued Southern Mississippi last Saturday, 52-12, through the magnificent game of quarterback Black Simms who threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another TD in three quarters before resting on the bench. Sims completed 12 of his 17 passes for 168 yards as he led his team into 3-0 victory.

With the 3-0 record for the Tide, the real challenge would come when they play their first SEC schedule. Of course, it is about to be seen how Sims would be connected to his favorite receiver Amari Cooper, who had eight receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Meanwhile, Jake Cooker entered the game late in the third quarter. He managed to lead a 99-yard scoring drive over the Golden Eagles. Coach Nick Saban knows that this is a different game as it poses more challenges because the opposing team is a lot better than what they played so far. Saban is expected to utilize Sims as the starter. Of course, Saban wants to remove any quarterback controversy that could arise in the future.

Alabama’s defense would be in full display also. Alabama ranked 11th in the passing defense by giving up 180.3 yards per game, while it is ranked No. 7 in the rushing defense by yielding 106.2 yards per game.

Unranked Florida Gators would love to derail the chances of the Crimson Tide to have an undefeated season. The Gators showed poise and stamina last week when they pulled off a nerve-wracking win over Kentucky in three OT.

Wide receiver Demarcus Robinson had a whopping 216 yards in 15 receptions and two touchdowns to make sure that he has helped his team. Jeff Driskel threw for 295 yards in 25 of 43 passes and three touchdowns for the Gators to stay afloat.

Anticipate Matt Jones to try to break the rushing defense of the Crimson Tide. Jones rushed 29 times for 156 yards and one touchdown over Kentucky’s defense. Will the Tide be able to contain him? Furthermore, Kelvin Taylor added 64 yards in 15 carries.

Florida Gators football will have to fight against the powerhouse Alabama Crimson Tide. Of course, Florida coach Will Muschamp understands the importance of this game, that might save his coaching career.
