“I think our receivers have improved,” Saban said.

“I think they have played faster and are playing with more confidence. I think we have had fewer drops. The goal is not to have any drops. We are going to continue to work on that, but I think they have made improvements. We have made improvements in the passing game. I think we are more consistent and confident in what we are doing. I think that has helped the quarterbacks and the confidence of the receivers.”
