Alabama won three of the seven college football qualifiers heading into the 2021 college football season. That included 2020 when the Crimson Tide finished undefeated and beat Ohio State to claim the title.
Coach Nick Saban and the Tide have lost a lot of this title team, even three of Heisman’s top five finishers – including winner DeVonta Smith. Despite this, Alabama is set to compete for another SEC Championship, another CFP appearance and another national title.

Alabama players to watch
As is often the case, when you have a starting freshman quarterback, the attention will start there. And after Mac Jones had 4,500 yards and 41 touchdowns, the Tide has big shoes to fill. Fortunately, Alabama can look to Bryce Young. He had 156 yards in 2020 as a substitute, but now the reins are his. The Tide will open with No.14 Miami, Fla. In Week 1, then travel to No.13 in Florida two weeks later, so Young will have some early testing.
Jean Metchie III will be a prime target for Young after Metchie totaled 55 catches for 916 yards and six touchdowns a season ago. Alabama is also working with a new CO this year, with Bill O’Brien replacing Steve Sarkisian.
Defensively, Will Anderson Jr. is just one of the few star players to lead the defense, joining Christopher Allen, Henry To’o To’o, Christian Harris and others.
