Alabama comes into this matchup ranked #24 in the country and they looked great on offense in their first game against Morehead State. The Crimson Tide could probably improve their defense a little bit, but you can’t complain about a 30+ point win. Indiana State dominated their opener as well, but they played a very easy opponent. The Sycamores did score 90 points and had two players go for 25+ points, so we could see some offensive fireworks in this game. I know Alabama lost a lot from their team last season, but I still think they are very good. Give me the Crimson Tide at home in this one.
