The 2013 college football regular season is rapidly coming to an end which means teams begin to see where they stand in terms of conference and national rankings. At this point in the season teams know whether or not they are a legitimate national title contender or even a contender in their own conference. The season outlook for the remainder of the 2013 season for the two-time defending national champions, Alabama Crimson Tide, is very clear and their eye is on the BCS title trophy once again. The Crimson Tide are coming off a 38-17 victory over their SEC West rival LSU Tigers.This gave the Tide a clear path to make their way back to a third straight national championship game if they can take care of business in their final three regular season games and the SEC title game. The Tide have two huge road games remaining in November, including a trip to long time rival Auburn. This coming week Alabama plays the Mississippi Bulldogs in Starkville, Mississippi.This game will be crucial...

Alabama's Nick Saban doesn't want his players to be in a celebratory mood this week. It's too soon for relief, too.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide's coach prefers them to focus on what it felt like to physically dominate in the second half against No. 18 LSU and turn a tight game into a 38-17 win.
That is how he wants Alabama to play.

Southeastern Conference football has always been of utmost importance to each school's fans and to the region itself, but the television ratings from the SEC on CBS brand are continuing to show a growing interest in the South's best sporting product.
Last Saturday's primetime game between LSU and Alabama on CBS garnered an average national household rating/share of...
Nick Saban simply can’t be beat.
Saturday, Saban and his Crimson Tide won their toughest (supposedly) game of the season, pounding LSU for a 38-17 victory. For the fans of teams that need Alabama to lose, things aren’t looking up. The Tide appear to be getting stronger as the season goes on, thanks mostly to their fierce leader, Nick Saban.
Sometimes your team wins. Sometimes your team loses. Even when your team loses, there is nothing wrong with dancing! Just ask this (what seems like an) LSU Tiger fan. He was showing off some moves during the loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Sometimes you gotta dance the pain away. HT The Big Lead
Covering Dixie Like Mildew - It's the SEC's world. Deal with it.
There's a possibility, but no chance.
Nathan Rush gives "10 Reasons Why Nick Saban Will Be the Next Coach At Texas." Note: If you're using The Longhorn Network as a reason why Saban would leave 'Bama for Texas, you've already lost your argument. (Athlon Sports)
Both Kentucky and Alabama are in the nation's top 25 on early basketball signees after the week-long early signing period for winter and spring sports got underway Wednesday. The Crimson Tide signed three players and does not anticipate any additional signees in the early period. Bama will have 13 players on scholarship next year barring something unforeseen.
Alabama's Nick Saban doesn't want his players to be in a celebratory mood this week after they impressively passed one of their final tests toward an undefeated regular season.
It also might be difficult to convince his team that it'll get much of a challenge from Mississippi State.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide haven't allowed more than 10 points during their five...
So that Alabama-Oklahoma game last week, Bama blowing a big lead and losing to Oklahoma in Dallas, wasn’t part of the SEC-Big XII Challenge, even though the Crimson Tide is in the Southeastern Conference and Oklahoma in the Big XII. The Challenge actually tips off Thursday night, and Bama is a part of it.
Although he may never have heard of Jerry Duncan, Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio would like to be like Jerry. Not in stature. Too late for that. Duncan, recruited to Alabama in the early 1960s as a running back, was transformed into an offensive tackle, like Kouandjio. Except Duncan was perhaps 5-11, 180.
Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley makes the Crimson Tide coaches’ Player of the Week list almost every week for defense. Mosley plays on most Bama kicking teams, too, but rarely is cited as a special teams player of the week. He probably thought this would be the week. But Noooo!
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron wanted to play it down. Crimson Tide wide receiver Kevin Norwood said he had never seen his coach so excited. That coach, Nick Saban, said it was all about the team. One of the Alabama sportswriters dubbed it Bama’s “Hallmark moment.”
Alabama hosted north of 100 elite prospects on Saturday with LSU in town and while it didn't lead to any commitments, it put the Crimson Tide in position to land priority prospects down the road.
Rashaan Evans got back to Tuscaloosa Saturday and he had nothing but praise for the Crimson Tide. Get the latest on the five-star out of Auburn, Ala. here...
