Alabama football will open its season versus the Miami Hurricanes in three weeks.

The USA Today Coaches Poll ranked the Crimson Tide at No. 1 for the preseason, and the Associated Press did the same.

According to the publication, Alabama is the top-ranked entering the season. Nick Saban is looking to build off a perfect campaign in 2020 with another national championship. The Tide lost players to the National Football League, especially on offense, but it returns a capable team. Bryce Young replaces Mac Jones at quarterback, and Bill O’Brien is calling the offense.

Defensively, this should be the best group Alabama has had since 2017.
