Despite a loss to Texas A&M, the Crimson Tide has its postseason aspirations in front of it.

An opportunity to compete for a Southeastern Conference Championship and a national title is alive. Regardless of this, Nick Saban and his coaching staff have some things to fix.

As it prepares to face LSU on November 6, here are reasons why the Tide can still win a national title this season.
