Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Utah State Aggies will visit the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday afternoon from Bryant-Denny Stadium in this matchup from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The weather is expected to be 82 degrees and cloudy. 

The Alabama Crimson Tide are the number one ranked team coming into week one. 

The Utah State Aggies played last week and are coming off of a win against the UConn Huskies 31-20 at home. Senior quarterback Logan Bonner led the team to their victory over the UConn Huskies. He finished going 20-of-29 for 281 yards with three touchdown passes. They did start off poor as they were down 14-0 after the first quarter against the Huskies.

Brian Cobbs led the Aggies as he reeled in seven passes for 78 yards plus a score in the win. 

The Crimson Tide bring back quarterback Bryce Young, who won the Heisman last season. He completed 366 of 547 passes for 4,872 yards with 47 touchdown passes against seven interceptions. 

Alabama finished seventh in the FBS as they averaged 338.2 yards per game through the air while they were 75th in rushing with 150 yards per contest. The Crimson Tide were 6th in the country in scoring offense by averaging 39.9 points a contest and finished 18th in scoring defense by allowing only 20.1 points per game. 

The defense of the Alabama Crimson Tide had a solid season as they gave up 20.2 points on 306.2 total yards per game. Will Anderson Jr was one of the best defensive players last year as he recorded 17.5 sacks and three pass deflections throughout the season. Last Season, they had 15 interceptions and six fumble recoveries.+34.5

The under is 5-2 in Aggies last 7 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and is 3-1-1 in Crimson Tide last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

The Utah State Aggies are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. The Crimson Tide are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 home games. The Crimson Tide are also 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. This feels like too many points to cover for Alabama.
