(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) — Fresh off their 20-7 win over Mississippi State on Saturday, the Alabama Crimson Tide will begin to prepare for Chattanooga this week.
(1) Alabama (10-0) will celebrate senior day on Saturday before the game. Head coach Nick Saban spoke about another class who will leave him at the end of the season.
“One thing I would like to mention is that this game is senior day for a very, very successful class of seniors who have contributed a tremendous amount to the program here over the last four or five years, whatever their career spanned, in terms of their record, how they represented The University of Alabama, the football program and the success that they have had, and hopefully, we have had some success in contributing to their personal development,” Saban said on Monday.
Alabama will take on Auburn in their final regular season game, but Saban isn’t looking past the Mocs (8-3).
“Chattanooga has a really good team. They have been very successful in their division (FCS). I think Russ (Huesman) does a really good job of finding ways to get the most out of his players in terms of what they can do. His son at quarterback, Jacob, is a really good quarterback, whether he’s running or throwing it. They have a lot of quarterback runs and do a lot of multiples of things. They are very good defensively in terms of what they have been able to accomplish statistically this year. We are more concerned right now as to how we focus on the things that we need to do to improve, and we certainly have every respect for the opponent that we have this week,” Saban said.
