NEWS

Covers Preview - It’s a mark of just how successful Nick Saban’s tenure at Alabama has been that a two-game losing streak represents the lowest point in years. The second-ranked Crimson Tide will try to put a disappointing end to last season behind them when they open up 2014 by playing West Virginia in Atlanta. The expectations for the Mountaineers are decidedly lower following a disappointing 2013, and they will face a pair of top-five teams within the first four games.
