Three days before the biggest season opener ever, No. 3 Florida State is still unsure whether it will have its leading tackler.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban disclosed that the prized 5-star running back has been so impressive that touches could be in order in Week 1. "Until he gets there, you're always concerned". "I certainly appreciate the great work that he did for us".

"It's a long season". No. 13 LSU and November 25 at No. 12 Auburn. We're pleased with the progress that we've been able to make with a lot of players. "When it isn't that way, you will see a very inconsistent team".

Well, don't believe the hype surrounding Alabama-Florida State, because it's mostly just another game.

But as the Crimson Tide defenders prepared for Francois the last two weeks, many can't help but admire the type of player they'll be facing Saturday in Atlanta. Only three of the 10 have been on-campus feastings against Western Carolina, San Jose State and Kent State, with the other seven coming in neutral-site venues in either Atlanta or Arlington, Texas.

Alabama was 11-3 at the Georgia Dome, the former home of the SEC Championship Game as well as the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic and the Peach Bowl.

Hurts led the would-be game-winning-drive against Clemson in the College Football Playoff championship game a year ago, and he'll look to improve with new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

Naturally, however, all parties involved wanted to settle the score in practice, including the players, Fisher said.

Exposure for recruiting purposes is a plus as well. Along those lines, they smashed a solid Southern Cal team by 46 points during their opener last season.

I've got two prior national champions, Alabama and Ohio State, claiming the top two spots in this year's playoff.

But Fisher's and Saban's history actually runs much deeper.

"Of all the assistants who have gone on, Jimbo and I are probably as close as any in terms of philosophy and how we do things", Saban said. "I know this: They are going to play hard". "Everybody keeps asking me this and that, but it doesn't matter what I say. They're more focused because they understand who they're playing and have respect for the quality of they're playing".

The biggest previous matchups according to the AP poll were No. 1 Nebraska vs.

Alabama sophomore defensive lineman Raekwon Davis has been released from the hospital after being shot in the leg early Sunday morning outside a Tuscaloosa bar. "What his status is moving forward will be a medical decision, not something that we can really comment on here right now".

Alabama football fans, we have some inside information directly from Tallahassee. It doesn't seem like our players were guilty of anything other than being out late, which doesn't make me happy. "That's one area where I think FSU has the advantage as they have a huge size advantage at wideout with Auden Tate and Keith Gavin both at 6'3" and up and over 220 pounds with speed.

"You've got two coaches who know each other and two coaches who used to fight in practice every day when I was at LSU", Spears told the Orlando Sentinel.
