Knock Knock?

Who’s there?

Alabama Crimson Tide. do you remember us

Yes, although Alabama is struggling with a two-loss season, reports of its demise as it relates to the college football playoffs have proven premature.

At No. 8 in last week’s CFP rankings, the Crimson Tide needed four teams ahead of them to falter to position themselves for a possible semi-final spot.

On Saturday, it came very close to doing just that, only to see how No. 3 Michigan and No. 4 TCU performed on time (19-17 vs. Illinois and 29-28 vs. Baylor, respectively) and Southern California win Stop to beat UCLA (48-45).
