Alabama looks to avoid a letdown when they return home in Week 2.
The Crimson Tide went onto national TV and throttled the Trojans in Week 1. They’ll now welcome in the Hilltoppers who have a lot of potential, especially after their win over the Rice Owls last week.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
The Hilltoppers handled the Rice Owls in Week 1, starting off their conference campaign on a high note.
The win was even more important as it showed that WKU can move the ball offensively after losing their 4 year star QB this past season.
QB Mike White had little problem against Rice. White finished with 517 yards and 3 touchdowns before getting the rest of the night off to get the backups some work in.
While the defensive matchup is certainly different here, expect the Hilltoppers to play nothing close to a conservative game.
They had 9 different receivers with receptions last week. Expect them to whip the ball all over the field here in this one and not hold anything back.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide
Lose a starting QB and a starting RB and 99% of the teams in the FBS would struggle in their first game of the season.
That 1% has the #1 team and the defending champions in it. Alabama had zero issues beating up on #17 USC in Week 1, throttling the Trojans 52-6. Alabama actually trailed 3-0 after 1 quarter, but that deficit didn’t last long.
Alabama put up 17 points in the 2nd, 21 in the 3rd, and added 14 more in the 4th as their offense looked like they had very little issues.
While both QBs played, Jalen Hurts stood out the most. He showed his dual threat ability in a big way.
Hurts threw for 118 yards and rushed for 32 while compiling 4 total touchdowns.
Look for both QBs to see time again here, but Hurts right now certainly has a step up on Barnett.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Prediction
This won’t be a let down spot by any means for Alabama, but after demolishing the Trojans in Week 1, they have zero reason for concern or tuneup.
Look for Alabama to wear this Hilltoppers defense down, but they won’t be as intense to the ball as they were in Week 1 against the Trojans pass game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: WKU ATS
This is a lot of points to lay here. Alabama will slow the game down and keep the Hilltoppers potent pass attack off the field.
