Said senior inside linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton: "It's important not to let this stage be too big for us, but everybody is embracing the challenge of establishing our identity". No. 4 Penn State in 1983 and No. 1 Oklahoma vs. The Crimson Tide boasts a flawless 10-0 record in such games.
Alabama is a ideal 10-0 straight up in season openers under head coach Nick Saban, and 9-1 against the spread, all while going against quality competition. Except for trying to guess when Saban will explode against one of his players or coaches, this game will lack overall tension, and that's among the prerequisites for any Game of the Century. "None of that is going to matter to how this team develops their identity and their ability to conquer adversity", Saban said. In '08, the Tide fell to Florida in the SEC championship game and then Utah in the Sugar Bowl. Even though Alabama brags about its Million Dollar Band, Florida State has Osceola and Renegade, and blah, blah, blah for both programs. But he was also undefeated in national title games until this past January.
They are the two winningest college programs since 2010 and have combined for five of the past eight national crowns, four by the Crimson Tide. In fact, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said of the Seminoles in relation to his conference, "Florida State is built like an SEC team". "The positive side of that is that the players are more into it".
It's certainly not the first time the two schools have hooked up. He also does not expect them to make contact unless they bump into each other on an ESPN set before meeting midfield minutes before kickoff Saturday. He's the Seminoles' best quarterback since, though, and should keep getting better. "And it will be extremely challenging, but that's why you play the game", FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. Former IMG Academy standout quarterback Deondre Francois threw for 3,350 yards last season, but running back Dalvin Cook and the top three receivers all departed. Last year, Jalen Hurts burst on to the scene and excelled early on. "It was fun. Learned a lot of football and a lot of different ways in which you practice and how we did things". "We're not looking back to see what's behind us, but it motivates us". Morgan had three shots on the day with two on goal and recorded her second career goal and her first game-winner at Alabama.
