Alabama Crimson Tide is the returning champion and has hit the ground running this season. Alabama is 12-0 and ranked #1 in the nation. The Crimson Tide is led by true freshman Jalen Hurts and sophomore Minkah Fitzpatrick.

Offensively, the Tide is led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, wide receiver Calvin Ridley, and tight-end O.J. Howard. The Tide also has arguably the top offensive lineman Cam Robinson.

The Tide has arguably one of the best defenses of all time, Alabama has great pass rushers in Jonathan Allen, Ryan Anderson, and Tim Williams that crumble opposing quarterbacks. The Tide also has lockdown corners in Minkah Fitzpatrick and Marlon Humphrey.

The reigning national champions have outscored teams 473 to 137 and shut out two teams this season(Kent State and LSU). The Tide has notable victories against LSU,USC and Texas A&M.

Alabama will play Florida this Saturday in the SEC championship.

My prediction for the remaining Crimson Tide schedule.

SEC Championship Game: Florida 51-9 

CFP Semifinal: Washington 38-24 

CFP Championship Game: Ohio State 34-31
