Five defensive players to watch for Alabama versus New Mexico State

A few slip ups occurred in week one, but it was nothing too severe for Alabama’s defense as Duke was limited to three points and 204 yards offensively in a blowout loss. 

The Crimson Tide returns home to Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, where it will host the New Mexico State Aggies. Despite projected temperatures at 97 degrees, Nick Saban and Alabama look to improve on certain aspects and keep the “Bama factor” rolling all season. 

After forcing three turnovers against the Blue Devils, Las Vegas has the Tide as a favorite by 50+ points this weekend.
