No team can be overlooked on the schedule. Ask Notre Dame, Texas A&M or Nebraska. Or, with Alabama’s opponent this week, Louisiana-Monroe, you could ask Nick Saban himself from 2007.
The Warhawks hail from the Sun Belt conference, which beat three FBS teams over the weekend. With Alabama coming off a narrow win against Texas, Saban will have a lot to clean up and keep his team focused with the Warhawks coming to Bryant-Denny Stadium for the first time since 2015.
Here’s everything you need to know about No. 2 Alabama’s game against Louisiana-Monroe.
