It’s a non conference showdown on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny stadium at Tuscaloosa Alabama. The Fresno State Bulldogs make the trip to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide.
This is the first match up between the two teams in their history.
Fresno State Bulldogs
The Fresno State Bulldogs have high hopes for their future with a new coaching staff, but most still believed this would be a rebuilding year.
They took a cupcake in week one to at least get one win under their belt and they really took big advantage of it. They beat Incarnate Word by a final of 66-0.
Now that is all nice, but the problem is they can’t take much away from that game. Incarnate Word is an FCS level school and only won three games in 2016, so they are a bad school.
Sophomore Chason Virgil is the starting quarterback for this team and he played well in game one. He threw for 246 yards and one touchdowns. He also was interception free which is good to see.
To win this game for the Bulldogs it’s going to take a minor miracle. They are outmatched in every part of the game, and they will need to find someway to overcome that.
The one thing they are going to really need to try and do is control the pace of the game. They need to give the Crimson Tide as few of possessions as possible.
Alabama Crimson Tide
On the other side of this match up is the Alabama Crimson Tide who played the farthest thing from a cupcake game in week one.
They played the Florida State Seminoles in week one, and everyone knew the Crimson Tide were good, but I don’t know if anyone expected them to be this good.
They dominated the Seminoles in every part of the game and that led to 24-7 victory. Quarterback Jalen Hurts didn’t have the best stats only throwing for 96 yards but he made key throws at big times, and he did enough to come out ahead in this game.
To win this game the Crimson Tide just need to play their game. They are the much better team and they need to use this game to get some experience for their younger players.
