Next week, Alabama football will have its most important A-Day game of the Nick Saban era.

Before then, the team has its second scrimmage at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Saban stated new installments will be made on offense and defense, and he wants to see players perform with more confidence in the game-like practice.

Bryce Young and the Crimson Tide’s defense were the headlines after the first scrimmage.

Young tossed four touchdowns (via reports), and the defensive front dominated the offensive line.

Alabama had a strong week of practice, and Saban mentioned how some of the young players have gotten better. This scrimmage will test how much they have grown, and how fast they can play.

Yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine now highlights three things Tide fans must look for in the second scrimmage.

1. Better protection from OL to QB’s/Paul Tyson’s answer

Alabama lost Landon Dickerson, Alex Leatherwood, and Deonte Brown to the NFL Draft, and it is a hard pill to swallow.
