No. 11 Florida coach Dan Mullen is attempting to take down No. 1 Alabama for the first time in 10 meetings.
Alabama coach Nick Saban is making the trip down to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, popularly known as “The Swamp,” for the first time since 2011. The Crimson Tide will be looking to extend their 30-game winning streak against SEC opponents, including an undefeated 6-0 record in SEC championship games.
Bryce Young is an electric leader for the Crimson Tide, completing 46 of 65 passes for 571 with seven touchdowns through two games, and is expected to tear up the Gators’ defense. Anthony Richardson and Emory Jones are currently alternating in the quarterback position for Florida, but Jones is expected to make the start on Saturday. Through the Gators’ first couple of matchups, Jones completed 31 of 49 passes with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
Although Mullen is currently 5-6 against ranked teams with the Gators, he faces the familiar challenge of defeating Saban and the Crimson Tide. Florida previously faced Alabama in the 2020 SEC Championship game, but they allowed the Crimson Tide to escape with a 52-46 win and continue their journey towards becoming consecutive national champions.
