Florida are their biggest test to date but we have already seen the Crimson Tide shut down one dual threat QB.

Alabama Form


Alabama have made straightforward work of their first two games of the 2021 season.

They dominated #14 Miami in their season-opener, winning 44-13, and then routed Mercer 48-14 last weekend.

They had a 31-0 lead at halftime against Mercer and were able to rest key players for this one.

QB Bryce Young has been red-hot, completing 46 of his 65 pass attempts for 571 yards and seven touchdowns.

Bryce has an outstanding group of receivers to throw to. The headline trio are Jameson Williams (157 yards, 2 TDs), John Metchie (146 yards, 1 TD) and Jojo Earle (110 yards).

RB Brian Robinson is yet to have a 100-yard game but he has been consistent with 130 yards off 22 carries to average 5.9 yards per touch. He has one touchdown.

Defensively they have allowed just 27 points (13.5 ppg) through their first two games.

Florida Form


Florida have made a perfect start to the season with wins over a couple of State rivals.

The Gators swept aside FAU 35-14 in their season opener, only giving up points in ‘garbage time’.

They followed that up with a 42-20 win over South Florida that saw them lead 35-2 at the half.

QB Emory Jones has proven to be inconsistent as the starter. He is 31/49 for 265 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

Jones has done better with his feet, rushing for 155 yards and a score off 23 carries.

Backup QB Anthony Richardson leads the team in rushing with 275 yards and two TDs off 11 carries.

WR Jacob Copeland is an explosive playmaker who has made the most of limited catches. He has six grabs for 190 yards and two TDs.

Verdict

Florida will probably have their moments here, but Emory Jones is just not consistent enough for them to knock off Alabama.

The Crimson Tide are rolling on both sides of the football right now and they can win and cover here.
